    Research in Dr. Connor’s laboratory examines cognitive and neurobiological bases of stroke recovery in people with aphasia. The goal is to understand plasticity of the brain to maximize functional recovery through rehabilitation. People with mild-to-moderate aphasia often have verbal deficits that impede everyday communication and limit participation in activities. Several treatments are available to ameliorate these deficits, but little is known about their neurobiological underpinnings or how improvements made during treatment translate to communication in everyday life.
