At the Cognitive Neuropsychology Laboratory at Georgetown University Medical Center, research focuses on how language is processed in the normal brain; how language breaks down in a brain damaged by stroke, head injury, or dementia; and how the brain recovers language functions -- with or without therapy -- in the months and years following the injury.

Specific areas of focus include:

Techniques employed include behavioral studies, treatment studies, functional magnetic imaging (fMRI), event related potentials (ERP), and eye-tracking.
