Ellyn Riley

Associate Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders

Dr. Riley’s research lab focuses on improving treatments for aphasia, a language disorder primarily caused by stroke. In the Aphasia Lab, we use behavioral and physiological measures, applied linguistic theory, and neuromodulation techniques to study language and cognitive factors, changes in neurophysiology, and communicative barriers that can influence recovery for persons with aphasia. Our goal is to improve recovery outcomes and quality of life for persons with aphasia and their families.
