PhD in MRI-Study on Digital Interventions in Aphasia

Apply before: August 31st, 2018
Institute: KU Leuven, Leuven Research Group Experimental Oto-rhino-laryngology
Job specification: The research at ExpORL covers the entire communication chain of speech and hearing, including a central focus on neural plasticity during oral and written language (re)acquisition. Within the lab, there is a vast amount of expertise in state-of-the-art MRI techniques, multi-channel brain potential recordings, psychophysical experiments as well as in the development of digital interventions (serious games). In addition, and of specific relevance for this project, an intensive collaboration has been set up with the stroke unit of UZ Leuven to recruit and systematically screen aphasic patients.
