Become a Participant

Continued research into the diagnosis, causes and treatment of aphasia and related disorders is conducted by the Harold Goodglass Aphasia Research Center (located at the Boston V.A.Medical Center), Boston University School of Medicine. The contribution of aphasic patients serving as subjects in this research is invaluable, as without them this work would not be possible.

If you have impaired speech or language due to a stroke or other event affecting neurological functioning, your participation in this research would be welcomed. Various aspects of language and thinking ability are tested, and patients typically find testing interesting and informative. Testing could be done at your home if that would be easiest for you.

As a basis for understanding changes in speech and language functions that occur after brain injury, it is important to understand language functioning in normal adults. Thus, the HaroldGoodglass Aphasia Research Center also welcomes normally functioning (non brain injured) adults for participation in our research programs.
