The mission of the Aphasia Research Lab is to understand how persons with aphasia process information during language comprehension and production and to identify the linguistic and non-linguistic factors that maximize re-learning of language.  We use various methods to study these questions including eyetracking while speaking or listening, computerized experimental tasks, language-based collaborative games, and treatment studies.  The long-term goal of our research is to create new knowledge on how the brain re-wires during language recovery and to develop novel treatment approaches that generate more robust outcomes. Our research has been supported by the National Institute of Health, American Speech-Language Foundation, and Purdue University. The Aphasia Lab is directed by Jiyeon Lee, PhD, CCC-SLP and is housed in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana.
