Acquired Brain Injury Communication Lab

Investigating communication disorders
Improving communication between people with acquired brain injury, their family members, friends and carers.

About us

The University of Sydney Acquired Brain Injury Communication Lab is a team of researchers investigating communication disorders following acquired brain injury (ABI). We work with research participants with traumatic brain injury, aphasia following stroke, dementia and other acquired neurological communication disorders.

The team is lead by Professor Leanne Togher, and includes experienced researchers, early career researchers, PhD candidates and honours students.

The goal of interacting with our family and friends is to maintain and even deepen our relationships, to facilitate our social identity and solidarity and to provide feelings of well-being and happiness. Speech pathologists have a critical role in facilitating this process.
