Description: Damage to the right hemisphere of the brain during adulthood causes problems for cognition and communication. We are currently at an early stage of knowledge with regard to the nature of communication disorders caused by right hemisphere damage, and in delineating their specific implications for communication in everyday life.

It aims to provide detailed descriptions of the behavioural manifestations of communication problems caused by right hemisphere damage, which will support improved speech pathology diagnosis and intervention for this condition. This project received funding from a Macquarie University Research Development / Seeding Grant. The investigators for this project are Dr Scott Barnes (CI), Professor Lyndsey Nickels, Associate Professor Suzanne Beeke, Associate Professor Steven Bloch, Professor Wendy Best, and Ms Sophie Toocaram.
