Speech and Language Therapy After Stroke
Neurophysiological Measurement in Aphasia Treatment

Our overall goal is to advance the state of functional brain imaging in aphasia, and then to apply the method to an intensive, imitation-based treatment for non-fluent aphasia.

Detailed information will follow in the next progress report.
