Neural Networks and Language Recovery in Aphasia From Stroke: fMRI Studies

Active, not recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

The purpose of this research is to utilize functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate brain reorganization for language behavior in stroke patients with aphasia. A primary focus of the study is on recovery of nonfluent propositional speech and naming in chronic aphasia patients. The fMRI technique is used to examine activation in the left hemisphere (LH) and right hemisphere (RH), during recovery...
