The Baynes Lab
~currently under construction~
Research in the Baynes Lab covers a number of topics encompassing language and neurological disorders. There are ongoing projects in the following areas:
- Neural basis of language recovery and rehabilitation after stroke.
- Idea density as a measure of cognitive reserve in mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's Disease (AD) across a linguistically and socioculturally heterogeneous cohort. This has involved developing a rubric for analyzing how content-full oral speech is.
- Contributions of the right and left hemispheres to the comprehension of discourse in healthy and neurologically impaired participants.
- Core Faculty: Kathleen Baynes, Ph.D.
