Associate Professor Anthony Angwin is a speech pathologist conducting research on word learning and neurogenic communication disorders. In particular, his research interests are focussed upon the use of psycholinguistic and neuroimaging methodologies to investigate language processing and word learning in both healthy adults as well as people with Parkinson's disease, stroke and dementia.

Research Interests

  • New word learning
    Modulation of learning by factors such as sleep and white noise. Neurochemical modulation of learning. Associative, contextual and cross-situational approaches to word learning. Neural mechanisms underpinning learning.
  • Communication and technology in dementia
    Perspectives of people with dementia and their caregivers on communication and technology. Caregiver communication training. Technology applications to facilitate communication in dementia.
  • Language processing in Parkinson's disease and aphasia
    Neural mechanisms that underpin cognitive-linguistic processing difficulties in people with Parkinson's disease or stroke.
