LAB Lab Digest

Every semester since Fall 2018, a team of undergraduates in the LAB Lab publishes a science communication digest.

To date, five Language and Brain Lab Digests have been published, with no signs of stopping.

These publications are printed for distribution to the broader community. We work to make scientific articles accessible to people with aphasia, their caregivers, undergraduates, and all other interested readers.

It is our hope to help bridge the divide between research findings and the broader public.
