Introduction on our Neurolap story

The reorganization of speech and language is measured electrophysiologically using EEG. It has been proven several times that language diagnosis based on EEG is more sensitive than language and speech diagnosis based on pen-and-paper tasks. Therefore, the researchers developed EEG paradigms for understanding and producing language (phonology, semantics and grammar) and standardized the paradigms for the Dutch-speaking population. Therapy algorithms for the rehabilitation of aphasia were developed based on the EEG. These algorithms are currently being validated. If the outcome is favorable, the EEG diagnostics will be introduced in speech therapy rehabilitation and expanded for cognitive and motor rehabilitation.

1. Neuroplasticity oriented diagnosis and rehabilitation in children and adults

  • NEUROLAP: Fundamental research on the cerebral organization of speech and language by means of EEG

  • Auditory processing in Parkinson's Disease and related Parkinsonism syndromes. 

  • Gait Realtime Analysis Interactive Lab (GRAIL): Interdisciplinary research on the interaction between speech, language, cognition and motor skills in Parkinson's Disease.

2.  Clinical neuroscientific research on speech and language

  • Development of normative data for the diagnosis of phonology, semantics and grammar by means of event-related potentials (ERP)

  • Development of ERP related biomarkers for the diagnosis of Primary Progressive Aphasia

  • Development and validation of ERP related therapy algorithms for aphasia rehabilitation.

  • Speech and language diagnosis during awake surgery for tumor resection in an eloquent language area
