Borna Bonakdarpour Laboratory


Based at the Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease, our laboratory uses multimodal neuroimaging, especially functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), to study the underlying neural mechanisms of language impairment (aphasia) and impairment in other areas of cognition. Currently the major focus of the lab is primary progressive aphasia (PPA). Our long-term goal is to understand the pathophysiology of PPA and to use that information to develop and evaluate effective treatments for aphasia.
