Ongoing Research Projects

Examination of N400 Priming Effect in Individuals with Aphasia: An ERP study

The purpose of this study is to understand the electrophysiological brain mechanisms (specially N400 event-related potentials) underlying semantic processing abilities in individuals with aphasia. Dr. Mehta and her colleagues will continue to recruit participants.

 

A multimodal approach to investigate post-stroke fatigue correlates

Many individuals with stroke experience pathological fatigue which hinders their participation in rehabilitation. The purpose of this study is to use a multimodal approach to examine the correlates of post-stroke fatigue. Specifically, we use clinical, behavioral and neurophysiological measures to quantify post-stroke fatigue. The project is supported by Texas Woman’s University Research Enhanced Program awarded to Dr. Hui-Ting Goh.

 

Neural correlates of balance performance in healthy adults

This project serves as a preparatory work of Dr. Vyoma Parikh’s dissertation. The goal of this project is to compare the effect of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation applied to two different brain areas (primary motor cortex and cerebellum) on balance performance. Dr. Parikh will use information gained from this study to design her dissertation aiming to examine the effect of brain stimulation on balance recovery after stroke. This pilot study is supported by Texas Woman’s University Center for Student Research.
