Research in the SANDLab — Semantics, Aphasia, and Neural Dynamics Laboratory –focuses on finding ways to optimize language therapy for acquired language disorders, with a primary interest in aphasia. Aphasia is a language disorder that occurs after a stroke or other acquired brain injury to the language dominant hemisphere of the brain. We are especially interested in what changes are taking place in the brain during successful therapy and how we can enhance these processes. We are also interested in how aging affects the way we interpret the cortical reorganization that occurs during language recovery.
