Laura L. Murray is a Professor in and Director of the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Western University. Her research and teaching focus on typical aging and acquired neurogenic cognitive and communication disorders, with specific research interest in not only examining how extra-linguistic cognitive deficits interact with language abilities in aphasia, right hemisphere disorders, traumatic brain injury, or progressive neurological diseases, but also in developing procedures for assessing and treating both acquired language disorders and related, extra-linguistic concomitant symptoms.
