About the CRANIAL Lab

The Cognition Rehabilitation And Neuroscience In Atypical Language Lab (CRANIAL Lab) is located at Chapman University's Rinker Health Sciences campus in Irvine, CA. 

We aim to understand the brain mechanisms that underlie language and prosodic impairments in post-stroke aphasia, Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) and aprosodia. We are also developing innovative treatments for language and prosodic deficits. 

 

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.
