NIH Awards UA $2M to Study Recovery of Language after Stroke

 

An interdisciplinary group of researchers at the University of Arizona has been awarded a $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study language abilities in patients recovering from a stroke. The findings are expected to guide the development of treatments that would help patients regain as much of their language skills as possible.

Congratulations to Stephen Wilson, Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences in Principal Investigator of the project and Co-Investigators Pélagie Beeson, Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences; Stella Kidwell and Steven Rapcsak, Department of Neurology; and Kambiz Nael, Medical Imaging, College of Medicine.  (Bolded names indicate faculty members in the Cognitive Science Program and the School of Mind, Brain, and Behavior.)
