Lehman College

Brain and Language Lab

Welcome to our lab. We are investigating the role of neuromodulation in treatment of speech and language disorders, such as stuttering and aphasia. In the lab we study the use of EEG and tDCS to target neuromodulation and potentially improve the effectiveness of speech and language treatment. Students working on this project are given a unique opportunity to gain research experience in EEG and tDCS and to understand the ways clinical research can lead to evidence-based practice in speech-language pathology.

For further information regarding our research please contact Dr. Peggy S. Conner
