Sarah Key-DeLyria Curriculum Vitae 


Sarah's research focuses on exploring the relationships between linguistic processing and cognition following brain injury. She uses behavioral and electrophysiological (ERP/EEG) methods to examine specific aspects of cognition and sentence comprehension. Her aim is to use what she learns to improve assessment and treatment approaches for survivors of brain injuries such as TBI and stroke. Her teaching interests include neuro- and psycholinguistics, neurological illness and injury, and introducing students to the field of speech-language pathology. She particularly enjoys supporting students in their active pursuit of their own research and clinical goals.
