The Language Neuroscience Laboratory is located in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Queensland. We also have team members in the Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Research in the lab is focused on three related questions:
To address these questions, we study individuals with aphasia, as well as healthy participants with normal language, using a range of state-of-the-art functional and structural neuroimaging techniques. We combine our multimodal imaging approach with comprehensive language assessments designed to quantify deficits in different components of the language processing system, such as syntactic structure, word meanings, and the selection and assembly of speech sounds.
