We investigate the neural basis of speech and language in the typically developing and healthy brain and in disorders of speech and language that are developmental (e.g. stuttering and SLI) or acquired (e.g. aphasia after stroke).
We investigate how brain areas interact during speech communication. We use brain imaging and brain stimulation to study typical speech perception and production and to explore differences in the structure and function of the brain associated with disorders of speech and language.
We are also interested in how the brain reorganises speech and language processing following visual deprivation early in development (congenital blindness) or brain damage acquired in adulthood.
