Welcome to the Baylor Applied Communicative Neuroscience Lab!

Our goal is to use current advances in cognitive neuroscience to improve understanding, assessment and treatment of neurogenic communication disorders. In particular, we focus on the ways in which abnormal brain systems (e.g. following brain injury, or as part of a developmental abnormality) affect auditory and language processing.

To accomplish this goal, we employ multiple methods:

    • Electrical Brain Imaging (Resting-state EEG/qEEG, Event-related potentials, Source localization)
    • Functional and Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI, RS-fMRI,T1, T2, DTI, etc.)
    • Neuromodulation Techniques (e.g. EEG Neurofeedback, Transcranial electrical stimulation)
    • Multiple participant and patient populations, including healthy individuals (both younger and older) and individuals with speech and language disorders, either congenital (i.e. dyslexia, ASD) or acquired (e.g. stroke or TBI patients).
