Kathleen's research interests broadly encompass the neural correlates of language. More specifically, she is interested in sentence comprehension, and how this process might function in the brain. Kathleen is currently working on an aphasia treatment study using fMRI and behavioral measures to better understand the neural processes that may be implicated in language impairment and subsequent language recovery after stroke. She is also working with perfusion imaging, a method that measures blood flow to the brain, which may be reduced and/or slowed in individuals with aphasia. Additionally, she is interested in neuroimaging methodological issues that can occur with special populations, such as brain-damaged stoke patients. Her ultimate goals are to help elucidate the neural underpinnings of language comprehension in unimpaired individuals, as well as those struggling with a language disorder.
