The Concepts & Cognition Laboratory consists of a group of cognitive scientists, neurorehabilitation clinicians and students who share a common interest in semantic memory. The group is dedicated both to basic and clinical translational research—applying what we know about language processing to improve communication for people with neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and primary progressive aphasia (PPA). The team uses numerous experimental modalities including eye tracking, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), psycholinguistic reaction time tasks, and neuroimaging. The laboratory is located within the Eleanor M. Saffran Center for Cognitive Neuroscience.
