fMRI Language and Cognition study

Study Description:
This study investigates the relationship between language and other cognitive abilities, as well as the reorganization of the language system after a stroke. The study involves a comprehensive assessment of language and cognitive abilities. This is done remotely over video-conferencing. The study also involves an in-person brain scanning session (MRI). We can provide a laptop to do the testing sessions at home if the participant does not have one. The sessions will be scheduled at times that work best for the participant. If you are interested, please contact us by email at brainrec@bu.edu or give us a call at 617-353-2706.
Aphasia Friendly Study Description:
In this study, researchers want to better understand language recovery in people with aphasia. We also examine how the brain reorganizes after a stroke. If you want to participate, you will do 8 to 10 behavioral testing sessions and 1 MRI scan. The testing sessions can be done on a computer at home. The MRI scan will be done at Boston University in Boston. We can provide a laptop to do the testing sessions at home if you do not have one. The sessions will be scheduled at times that work best for you. If you are interested, please contact us by email at brainrec@bu.edu or give us a call at 617-353-2706.
