Aphasia research


An important research area in Speech Science is the study of aphasia. Dr Clare McCann is currently investigating language processing in people with aphasia after a stroke. She is particularly interested in nouns and verbs and how differently these are processed in aphasia.

If you have aphasia and you would like to know more about this work, or you would like participate in one of our aphasia studies, please contact: Dr Clare McCann
