Welcome to the Aphasia Research page of CTIP The Council for Trade and Investment Promotion! We are dedicated to conducting high-quality research in Bergen County, NJ, focusing on Aphasia and its related fields. With our team of experts and cutting-edge facilities, we aim to provide valuable insights and advancements in understanding this communication disorder.
What is Aphasia?
Aphasia is a language disorder that affects a person's ability to communicate and understand spoken or written language. It most commonly occurs as a result of a stroke or brain injury, impacting various aspects of language, such as speaking, comprehension, reading, and writing.
The Importance of Aphasia Research
Understanding Aphasia and its underlying causes is crucial in developing effective therapies and interventions. Through our comprehensive research efforts, we strive to:
- Investigate the neural mechanisms of Aphasia
- Identify potential risk factors and preventive measures
- Explore innovative treatment methods and therapies
- Evaluate the impact of different interventions on language recovery
- Enhance the overall quality of life for individuals with Aphasia
Our Research Approach
At CTIP, we employ a multidisciplinary approach to Aphasia research, collaborating with various experts and professionals including neurologists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists, and researchers. By combining our expertise, we aim to tackle Aphasia from different angles, leading to a more comprehensive understanding of this complex disorder.
We currently have several ongoing research projects addressing different aspects of Aphasia. These projects include:
1. Neural Plasticity in Aphasia Recovery
This project focuses on investigating the brain's ability to reorganize and adapt following Aphasia. By studying neural plasticity, we aim to uncover potential mechanisms for language recovery.
2. Language Therapy Interventions
Our team is actively involved in evaluating the efficacy of various language therapy interventions for individuals with Aphasia. These interventions include constraint-induced aphasia therapy, melodic intonation therapy, and computer-assisted treatments.
3. Cognitive-Linguistic Assessment Measures
We are developing and validating comprehensive assessment measures to accurately evaluate the cognitive-linguistic abilities of individuals with Aphasia. These measures help in tailoring treatment plans and tracking progress.
