At the Aphasia Research Lab at the University of Washington, we conduct research to better understand the complex processing of language and its breakdown in individuals with aphasia.

In particular, we study:

  1. The theoretical nature of word retrieval deficits in aphasia.

  2. Rehabilitation of aphasia.

  3. The influence of attention and cognitive processing on word retrieval.

  4. The psycholinguistic principles of stimuli used in treatment and/or standardized assessments.
