Andrew DeMarco
Name: Andrew DeMarco, PhD, CCC-SLP
Title: Post-Doctoral Fellow
Research Topic: Multimodal imaging of the neural mechanisms of transcranial direct current stimulation in stroke aphasia treatment
Mentors: Peter Turkeltaub, MD, PhD (Department of Neurology, Georgetown University)
Pubmed: See link

Bio: Andrew is a neuroscientist and licensed speech-language pathologist in his first year of post-doctoral training in the Cognitive Recovery Lab at Georgetown University. Broadly, his research interests relate to understanding how the speech and language systems break down in the brain in aphasia (difficulties understanding or talking e.g., after a stroke) and how that information can inform aphasia rehabilitation. His areas of expertise include acquired neurogenic disorders, neuroimaging, and aphasia rehabilitation. His current training focuses on gaining experience with neurostimulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to evaluate their potential for enhancing aphasia rehabilitation.
