“Our research could not continue without our generous and kind donors!”

Georgetown University Medical Center’s Elissa Newport, Ph.D., Director, Center for Brain Plasticity and Recovery is leading research that examines how the brain acquires language following perinatal stroke. Using assessments of language, visual processing, and other cognitive abilities, in combination with functional brain imaging (fMRI), her team is studying how the developing brain recovers from strokes that occur before birth, in infancy, and early childhood.

“We believe our research on the outcomes of childhood stroke will provide important findings on how to achieve the best recovery of language and cognitive skills in young children,” Dr. Newport says. “It may also provide breakthroughs in achieving equally good recovery in adults, who currently do not recover as well as children.”
