Behavioral Neuroscience and Stroke: Language

Description

This study investigates the brain areas involved in specific components of language. Lesion analysis, functional MRI, and event-related potentials assess the functional roles of particular brain areas in language, the time course with which they are recruited into the language system, the ways in which these areas interact with each other, and how they interact with other areas that support the skills necessary for language. This work is in collaboration with our colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of California, Davis.
