Motor Speech Disorders Laboratory
Research in the Motor Speech Disorders Laboratory is highly interdisciplinary in investigating the neuroscience of communication disorders caused by degraded speech. Patient populations include persons with Parkinson's disease, ALS, multiple sclerosis, cerebellar degeneration, Huntington's disease, and other neurogenic disorders. Current work includes development of telemedicine applications for portable technology for remote speech assessment and intervention with Dr. Berisha.We also study speech perception in patients with cochlear implants in collaboration with Dr. Dorman. In other work, we collaborate with neurologists (Drs. Dodick and Caviness) at the Mayo Clinic to study cortical biomarkers for recovery from concussion using electromyography and a speech perception paradigm.
