Application of graph theory to both resting-state and task-based fMRI data to uncover brain-behavior relationships related to therapy outcomes in aphasia

This project will use fMRI to examine changes in the brain related to behavioral therapy outcomes in persons with aphasia. We aim to recruit twenty persons with aphasia. Each participant will receive 4 MRI scans. Between scan 1 and scan 2, no therapy will be provided (10 week break). Between scan 2 and scan 3, ten weeks of word finding therapy will be provided. Between scan 3 and scan 4, no therapy will be provided (10 week break). The therapy used is abstract word retrieval training. The results of this project will help inform rehabilitation practices in aphasia.

There will be 4 fMRI scans. After the first and third fMRI scans, there will be an assessment. After the second fMRI scan, there will be 10 weeks of treatment.
