PSU’s Aging and Adult Language Disorders Lab is pleased to announce a new NIDCD R01 grant, "Algorithmic Classification of Paraphasias." This project focuses on automated analysis of the language of people with aphasia following strokes, and is developing techniques to identify and characterize paraphasic speech errors. The long-term goal of this work is to develop tools to assist aphasiologists and speech-language pathologists in delivering and scoring assessments. This grant is a collaboration between Steven Bedrick, Ph.D., at OHSU and Gerasimos Fergadiotis, Ph.D., from Portland State University.
