Lori Altmann

Associate Professor

Dr. Altmann has a long-standing interest in the interaction between cognitive ability and language use, with a focus on how disorders of executive function and working memory affect language production and comprehension. Previus studies have addressed this issue in healthy older and young adults, people with Alzheimer disease, people with Parkinson disease, and college students with dyslexia. More recently, Dr. Altmann has been investigating how cogniion and language interact with movement. This has led to several studies on the interaction between cognition, language and walking in stroke, the effects of exercise on people with Parkinson’s disease, multi-tasking in peopl with Parkinson disease, and the effects of hand gestures on the success of treatment for aphasia after stroke. Dr. Altmann’s research is funded by the National Institues of Health.
