Do you want to participate in aphasia research?

  • The Aphasia Registry connects people with aphasia to aphasia research at the UW, as well as other opportunities.  

  • The Aphasia Repository is a database of information collected during a one-time testing session at the UW Aphasia Research Lab. The results of these tests help us match potential participants to the right studies.

  • Current studies in the lab are examining:

    • Treatment of word-finding problems in aphasia

    • The influence of attention and cognitive processes on word-finding problems

    • Why people with aphasia have difficulty with word-finding

    • The influence of stress and depression on aphasia treatment

  • To get involved, or for more information:
