Biography

Corianne Rogalsky is an assistant professor in the College of Health Solutions as well as the director of the Communication Neuroimaging & Neuroscience Lab (CoNi Lab). Her research interests include the neurobiology of language and music perception, and how these processes interact with attention, and memory, and the motor system. The aim of her work is to better understand the neural and cognitive resources that are needed to improve communication and quality of life for individuals who have experienced language and cognitive impairments after a brain injury such as a stroke. Dr. Rogalsky's work has widespread clinical implications regarding treatment and diagnosis of communication disorders and cognitive impairments, as well as individualized, neuroimaging-guided, rehabilitation programs.

The Communication Neuroimaging and Neuroscience (CoNi) Lab uses a variety of neuroimaging techniques including task-based functional MRI, resting-state functional MRI, high-resolution structural MRI, and diffusion tensor imaging, as well as neuropsychological methods to study speech comprehension and recovery in a variety of populations, including typical older adults and individuals who have experienced stroke, aphasia, and/or epilepsy. Dr. Rogalsky’s CoNi Lab is a member of the NIH-funded Multi-site Aphasia Research Consortium (MARC).

Research Interests

The Communication Neuroimaging and Neuroscience Lab (CoNi Lab) dives into several areas of research centered around understanding the neural resources that support language, music, attention, and memory, and how these resources change after a brain injury such as a stroke. Our current projects include studies of healthy younger adults, healthy older adults, and adults who have experienced a stroke, using a combination of neuroimaging and behavioral methods. The CoNi lab is particularly interested in (1) understanding how to maximize language comprehension abilities for individuals who have communication difficulties after a stroke and (2) identifying ways to improve language comprehension for healthy older adults in difficult listening environments. There are several potential opportunities for students to participate in all areas of our research.
