Neurorecovery Team

Accelerating Recovery through Science & Collaboration
The UC Neurorecovery Team is an interdisciplinary group of researchers from three Colleges on the Academic Health Center campus: Allied Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing. 
The team works to better understand how stroke survivors and families recover from stroke and how to maximize stroke recovery. Study topics include:

  • Walking Recovery
  • Arm and Hand Function
  • Language and Speech Recovery
  • Mood and Depression
  • Hemineglect 
  • Family Caregiver Support 
  • ...and more!
Many of our studies provide cutting-edge therapies at no cost for eligible participants. 
Some studies are also able to provide transportation assistance and compensation.
VISION: The UC Neurorecovery Team aims to empower people with neurological disorders and family caregivers to enhance quality of life through:  
(1) development of novel interventions,  
(2) discovery of brain-behavior relationships, and  
(3) identification of recovery processes.

    The mission of the UC Language Recovery & Communication Technology Lab is to improve the communication quality of life for people with aphasia through: 

    • Researching the impact of interventions on the communicative performance of people with aphasia 
    • Collaborating with local speech-language pathologists and stroke survivors to increase community awareness of aphasia
    • Mentoring students in CSD to become future clinicians and researchers.
