Research and Teaching Interests
Dr. Neils-Strunjas studies development of cognition and communication across the age span, including diseases of aging that result in dementia. She explores methods to slow the progression of dementia through interventions provided by interprofessional teams that include faculty and students from speech-language pathology, exercise science, and psychology. For example, she implemented an exercise and social engagement program, Bingocize®, for persons with dementia in nursing home settings and a community-based 10 week program, Let's Talk About Memory for older adults with mild memory impairment.
