Dr. Den Ouden was trained in formal linguistics and neurolinguistics at the University of Groningen, before conducting postdoctoral work in neuroimaging and aphasiology at Northwestern University. His research program is aimed at the use of neurophysiological interventions to enhance treatment outcome in aphasia. To this end, Den Ouden investigates the neural correlates of linguistic structure-building or deconstruction processes during language production and comprehension in healthy and language-impaired speakers and he has also conducted studies into the neural correlates of phonological planning and overt speech production. Recently, his lab at the University of South Carolina has started experimental work with high-definition transcranial direct current stimulation (HD-tDCS) as a method for modulating language functions in healthy speakers. The aim of this work is to test the viability of focal neuromodulation for raising the cap on language treatment outcomes.
