Adam Buchwald, PhD.
Professor of Communicative Sciences and Disorders
Director, Center of Health and Rehabilitation Research
Adam Buchwald is leading a highly interdisciplinary team in his Psycholinguistics, Aphasia, and Neuromodulation Lab. The focus of this group is to understand speech and language production mechanisms, and how we can help individuals with impairment to these crucial abilities subsequent to stroke. To achieve these goals, Buchwald's research includes detailed studies of the performance and rehabilitation of neurologically impaired populations with acquired speech and language deficits (e.g., aphasia, apraxia of speech) as well as neurologically intact populations, and incorporates the research methods of several disciplines spanning methods from Communication Sciences and Disorders, Neurorehabilitation, Psycholinguistics, and Cognitive Science, and Neuroscience.
Prior to coming to NYU in 2007, Buchwald completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University in 2005, and completed a two-year post doctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University.
