C-STAR Lecture Series

As part of the Center for the Study of Aphasia Recovery (C-STAR) (link, Dirk den Ouden organizes the biweekly C-STAR lecture series. An archive of these lectures, going back to 2016, is available on the C-STAR website. It provides a wonderful overview of ongoing work on the neurobiology of language, and in particular the neurobiology of aphasia rehabilitation.


The mission of the Aging Brain Cohort (ABC) study at the University of South Carolina is to discover how brain health is related to the problems that coincide with aging. This intramural Center of Excellence, led by Dr. Julius Fridriksson, hopes to identify risk factors for a host of age-related problems (e.g. cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, etc.). Dirk den Ouden is a co-investigator and researchers from the Neurolinguistics Lab collaborate on studies based on the rich ABC@USC dataset.
