Research themes

NARU’s research portfolio contains four main research themes, each of which involve clinical activities.
These themes are: 

  • Semantic cognition
    Semantically driven verbal and nonverbal behaviour made up of two interactive components: semantic representations (conceptual knowledge) and semantic control
  • Normal and impaired language
    Studies of communication in humans, ranging from conversation in aphasia to morality and depression
  • Clinical intervention in neuroscience and aphasia
  • Research relating to rehabilitation. We run a speech therapy clinic and our studies investigate a wide variety of clinical techniques and advances.
