The Ohio University Neurolinguistics Laboratory is dedicated to the study of acquired neurogenic language disorders. We study aphasia and aspects of brain injury, dementia, stroke, and diabetes that affect people’s cognitive and communicative abilities. We aim to improve the quality of life and care for brain injury survivors and the people who are important to them. A key focus is the development of eyetracking methods for indexing abilities that are challenging to assess: language comprehension, memory, attention, and semantic priming. Working in diverse languages in many countries, we strive to contextualize our work in global settings and promote culturally attuned advocacy and access to rehabilitation services, especially for older adults.
We welcome gifts to recognize individuals for accomplishments, celebrate milestones, or memorialize friends and loved ones. You can make your contribution via check or online.
