Margaret A. Naeser, Ph.D., Principal Investigator – Margaret Naeser is Research Professor of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine and Research Linguist/Speech-Language Pathologist, V.A. Boston Healthcare System. She received her B.A. in 1966 from Smith College (German and Zoology, Junior year – University of Hamburg); and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in 1970 (Linguistics and Communication Disorders). She did Post-Doctoral work from 1970-1972 at UCLA (Linguistics and Neuroanatomy) and California State University in Long Beach, California (Speech-Language Pathology).
Dr. Naeser is currently involved in two projects. The first, Neural Networks and Language Recovery in Aphasia from Stroke: fMRI Studies, is a four-year research project funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The goal of this project is to utilize functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate brain reorganization for language behavior in chronic stroke patients with aphasia. The second project, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation to Improve Speech, is a five-year research project funded by the NIH (National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders). This project investigates whether repetitive transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (rTMS) can be used to improve speech and naming in chronic stroke patients with nonfluent aphasia.
