Maryam Ghaleh is a postdoctoral researcher at the Cognitive Recovery Lab, Georgetown University Medical Centre. Her research has focused on neural correlates of speech perception, language comprehension, and cognitive processing in healthy adults as well as stroke survivors. She is particularly interested in using multimodal neuroimaging and neuromodulation approaches to study the brain basis of language processing, and to investigate the relationship between language and other cognitive abilities in people with aphasia.

Andrew is a neuroscientist and ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist. His research interests relate to elucidating the neural and cognitive architecture of speech and language function, how this circuitry breaks down in aphasia, and how that information may inform aphasia rehabilitation. His areas of expertise include acquired neurogenic disorders, neuroimaging, and aphasia rehabilitation. His current training focuses on gaining experience with neurostimulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to evaluate their potential for enhancing aphasia rehabilitation.
