We are working to better understand how aphasia affects one’s ability to produce and comprehend words and sentences. We also develop novel treatment approaches to improve sentence production in persons with aphasia. We use a variety of methods to conduct research, including:

  • Comprehensive language evaluations
  • Language therapy research 
  • Computerized speaking and listening tasks
  • Eyetracking while speaking and listening
