Affiliate Highlight: Reading in Aphasia Lab
We’re continuing with our affiliate highlight series, this time turning our eye to Reading in Aphasia Lab in Atlanta, GA.
Learn What Makes Reading in Aphasia Lab Unique
Our lab is interested in how the brain functions during post-stroke reading. We study these mechanisms in adults with aphasia using fMRI and non-invasive brain stimulation. Our goal is to create a post-stroke reading information that is individualized to each person’s unique recovery.
Here Are Some of the Services They Offer
We currently have two ongoing studies. One looks at reading in the scanner and the other looks at upregulating and downregulating different areas in the nonlesioned hemisphere to see if we can improve reading.
They Have Great Success Stories
Our great moments are every day we see a participant and help them to contribute to making future aphasia intervention better!
The Pandemic Changed a Few Things…
We are doing both online and in-person testing for our studies, but MRI and non-invasive brain stimulation testing are in-person. We are following all COVID-19 guidelines provided by the University System of Georgia.
