Join Associate Professor of Communicative Sciences and Disorders Adam Buchwald for an exploration of non-invasive brain stimulation as a part of treatment to enhance speech motor learning.
This free colloquium presentation will be valid for 0.1 ASHA CEUs (Intermediate Level; Professional Area).
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown to enhance stroke rehabilitation outcomes in motor domains. Our previous research suggests that tDCS can promote speech motor learning in unimpaired individuals. In this talk, we discuss an apraxia of speech treatment study that combines tDCS with behavioral treatment and examines behavioral and neurobiological outcome measures.
