Grants and Research Projects

The use of auditory (hearing) and somatosensation (touch) to produce clear speech in adults with and without neurologic injury or disease. My work focuses on how to 1) assess changes in touch sensation through the development of unique protocols, 2) identify ways to improve sensation through training, and 3) find means of adapting our therapy paradigms to compensate for any declines in sensation to maintain clear communication in adults.
