Center for Aphasia Research and Rehabilitation
The mission of the Center for Aphasia Research and Rehabilitation (CARR) is to encourage collaboration among faculty members, research associates and speech-language pathologists, with the goal of integrating their research findings on stroke, aphasia, and normal cognition into the creation of more effective aphasia treatments. CARR seeks to accomplish this mission by:
- fostering basic science research in the acute management of stroke; enhancing basic science research on the neuropsychological and neural mechanisms of aphasia;
- facilitating basic science research on the neuropsychological and neural mechanisms of normal cognition, and how those mechanisms change with age;
- expanding collaboration between basic science research in stroke, aphasia and normal cognition;
- increasing translational research by integrating basic science research findings into the design, implementation and testing of aphasia treatments; and
- supporting interactions between researchers and clinicians.
