Our research is funded by NIH(NIDCD)

The goals of our research work are:

  1. to identify speech markers with potential to be used clinically for AD diagnosis and prognosis,
  2. to characterize the underlying physiological and neuropathological mechanisms of speech impairments in individuals with dementia;  and
  3. to develop interventional and preventative strategies to promote oromotor and cognitive function reserve for patients at risk of developing age-related neurodegenerative diseases.
