Treatment Outcomes and Brain Mechanisms Associated With Non-Invasive Neuromodulation in Post-Stroke Aphasia

The purpose this study is to test the utility of pairing external neuromodulation with behavioral language treatment to boost therapy outcomes and to investigate the mechanisms associated with recovery. Because all PWA have word retrieval deficits, this project will test if greater language gains can be achieved by supplementing anomia …

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Constraint Induced Language Therapy for Chronic Aphasia

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been demonstrated to improve language function in subjects with chronic aphasia in a number of small studies, many of which did not include a control group. Although the treatment appears promising, data to date do not permit an adequate assessment of the utility of the …

Genetic and Cognitive Predictors of Aphasia Treatment Response

Aphasia, or language impairment after a stroke, affects approximately 2 million people in the United States, with an estimated 180,000 new cases each year. The medical community cannot predict how well someone with aphasia will respond to treatment, as some people with aphasia are poor responders to intervention even when …

Efficacy of Low-frequency rTMS in Aphasia

In a randomized controlled trial, efficacy of low-frequency, inhibitory rTMS will be examined in rehabilitation of acquired aphasia. Two cortical sites will be targeted: Right-hemispheric homologues of Broca's and Wernicke's areas. In addition to cognitive screening prior to onset of rTMS, language assessments will be conducted before, during and after …

Effects of rTMS Based on Hemodynamic Activity for Language Recovery in Early Poststroke Aphasia

The aim of this study is to assess the safety and clinical efficacy of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) based on hemodynamic brain activity pattern with functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) in early poststroke nonfluent aphasia patients.

Network Connectivity and Temporal Processing in Adolescents Who Stutter

The specific purpose of this clinical trial is to compare performance on rhythm perception and production tasks between children who stutter and children who do not stutter. The overall project also aims to investigate how performance on rhythm tasks may be related to brain activity (non-clinical trial).

Speech Processing in Stuttering

This research is being done to better understand stuttering, specifically how people who stutter may process and/or produce speech. Eligible participants enrolled will complete a variety of computer and speech-based tasks on up to 2 visits.

Using High-definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation to Improve Speech Fluency in Cantonese-speaking Adults Who Stutter - A Preliminary Investigation

The proposed study aims to investigate the effect of combined transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and behavioural speech training in improving speech fluency in Cantonese-speaking adults who stutter (AWS), and to examine its maintenance over a 6-week period.

Improving Aphasia Using Electrical Brain Stimulation

Language and communication are essential for almost every aspect of human life, but for people who have aphasia, a language processing disorder that can occur after stroke or brain injury, even simple conversations can become a formidable challenge. Speech and language therapy can help people recover their language ability, but …
