Lauryn Zipse, PhD, CCC-SLP, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. She is also Co-Director of the Cognitive Neuroscience Group, a collaborative research group that uses behavioral and neuroscience methods to study relationships among learning, language ability, and cognitive factors.
Dr. Zipse specializes in adult neurogenic communication disorders, particularly aphasia and apraxia od speech (AOS). Her research addresses the music-based ingredients of aphasia treatments, speech prosody, and cognitive assessment. She is a committed teacher and research mentor. She coordinates the master’s thesis program in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, and mentors both undergraduate and graduate students in her lab.
Dr. Zipse’s research interests concern cognitive and language deficits due to stroke and other brain injury in adults. Her work addresses the prosodic and rhythmic processing abilities involved in speech planning, the degree to which these abilities may be preserved in aphasia, and how they may be used in speech and language therapy. In addition, she studies nonverbal cognitive disorders in adults who have experienced brain injury.
