Dr. Ramsberger's research focuses on developing assessment methods and treatments for people who have impaired language and cognition as a result of brain damage that occurs in adulthood. The development of new methods is based on current understanding of neurologic disorders, neural plasticity, psycholinguistics and cognitive psychology. Once a new method is designed, we explore the effectiveness of the method first through single-subject and small group research designs; and later through large, randomly assigned group designs. Dr. Ramsberger is especially interested in developing treatment methods that utilize technology to optimize features of treatment delivery and in facilitating translation of research into clinical practice.
