Aphasia is a disorder caused by brain damage, impairing language comprehension and language production. In the aphasia lab we will explore the linguistic and non-linguistic factors that impact adults’ performance during language comprehension tasks. Specifically, we will explore attention allocation processes and their relationship to language comprehension in individuals with and without aphasia.
