Welcome to the Aphasia Research Laboratory at Boston University
The lab is directed by Dr. Swathi Kiran, Professor, Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, Sargent College. The primary goal of the lab is to understand language processing and communication following brain damage. Research in the lab makes use of Neuroimaging, neurolinguistic, psycholinguistic and neurobehavioral tools in investigating pertinent questions related to Aphasia.
We are part of the Center for Neurobiology of Language Recovery.
We are also involved with Constant Therapy Inc, an online health system that provides ongoing rehabilitation services to patients via iPads, and Android devices. Constant Therapy rehabilitation services currently focus on patients with communication and cognitive disorders.
