Research and Teaching Interests
From a background in formal phonology and syntax, Dirk den Ouden investigates how the brain supports language functions in healthy and aphasic speakers. One goal of his research is to improve treatment outcomes through a neurophysiological approach to stroke-induced deficits (cortical stimulation), in combination with behavioral language training. He maintains an interest in linguistic theory, as well as in neural correlates of lexical representation/access and sentence production.
