I am interested in the compensatory mechanisms in elder people and aphasia patients who suffered from stoke or brain atrophy. My research project mainly focuses on using the ERPs component, N400, as a biomarker to index different levels of comprehension difficulties in aphasia patients and further using fMRI to investigate whether and how levels of ability would modulate the activation pattern and the functional connectivity.
