Stroke Research at UofSC

The University of South Carolina Aphasia Lab is currently closed due to the COVID 19 quarantine.  Some research studies and outreach programs are currently being offered in a modified format online.  Please contact Dr. Leigh Ann Spell at Spelll@mailbox.sc.edu for more information.

South Carolina’s midlands area has one of the highest rates of stroke in the USA. At the University of South Carolina, a team of investigators is working towards understanding the effects of stroke on everyday life and developing new treatments for stroke survivors. Much of this research is focused on communication, something that very often is affected by stroke.

Aphasia Lab studies are aimed at improving communication function following stroke. Anyone who has had a stroke and now has difficulty communicating qualifies for this research.

This research enables stroke survivors to receive an MRI which will be available to them upon request. Participation in this research is completely FREE of charge.
