Our research lab is interested in learning more about how to improve treatments for aphasia, a language disorder primarily caused by stroke. For example, severe fatigue is a common problem in the stroke population and current speech-language therapy does not typically include specific protocols for fatigue management. The lab is currently focused on developing an objective and clinically-practical method of detecting fatigue in patients with aphasia. With the development of better fatigue detection systems, we can begin to investigate effects of fatigue on treatment outcomes and develop protocols for fatigue management during therapy.
