Welcome to the
Cognition Rehabilitation And Neuroscience In Atypical Language Lab
About the CRANIAL Lab
Our mission is to investigate brain mechanisms that underlie language and prosodic impairments in post-stroke aphasia, Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) and aprosodia. The overarching aim of our research is to use what we learn about these brain mechanisms to inform the development of innovative treatments. We use cutting-edge neuroimaging and behavioral methods to better understand the neurobiology of language and language recovery in several populations.
We also seek to understand how the neurotypical brain processes language and prosody. Studying the neural underpinnings in neurotypical populations helps us understand how language is organized in the brain.
