The Speech, Language and Brain Laboratory (SLAB Lab) focuses on speech and language comprehension and production across the lifespan, both in unimpaired individuals and in various populations with developmental or acquired speech and/or language disorders, such as aphasia, apraxia of speech, and phonological disorders. The research is primarily behavioral and combines different methodologies, including eye-tracking, perceptual speech error analysis, psycholinguistic reaction time studies, acousticĀ analysis, neuropsychology and treatment research. Research in the SLAB Lab is theoretically motivated and has implications both for models of normal speech and language processing and for clinical practice.
