Investigating the effects of promising aphasia interventions on brain function to inform therapies for stroke survivors
Return to Listing
Strokes are the most common cause of death and disability among neurological and psychiatric disorders, both nationally and in Wisconsin. Aphasia, or the inability to communicate, is a specific and devastating outcome of strokes that affects approximately 30% of people with stroke, making it one of the most prevalent causes of serious long-term disability. Current therapies for aphasia provide only modest benefits, and there is a great need to develop more effective methods to help people with this condition recover their language.
Through this award, researchers will conduct the first detailed, large-scale assessment of three promising interventions and their effects on brain function to inform approaches to aphasia therapy and focus future research in this area.
