2017 Annual Meeting
The 55th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Aphasia will be held at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel in Baltimore, USA. The Academy of Aphasia welcomes submissions of original experimental, clinical, theoretical, and historical research from any field that contributes to the study of aphasia, including Speech-Language Pathology, Psychology, Neurology, Neuroscience, Linguistics, History, and Computational Modeling.
Our keynote speaker is Alex Martin. Dr. Martin received his B.A. from the City College of New York and his Ph.D. from the City University of New York. His postdoctoral work at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke focused on the breakdown of language and memory processes in Alzheimer's disease. In 1985, he joined the faculty of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, where he studied cognitive dysfunction associated with HIV. In 1990, he moved to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), where he continued his work on cognitive abnormalities in neurologic and neuropsychiatric disorders and began functional brain imaging studies on the neural substrates of cognition and conceptual memory. In 1997, Dr. Martin became the Chief of the Cognitive Neuropsychology Section of the NIMH's Laboratory of Brain and Cognition. Dr. Martin is an elected fellow of the American Psychological Society and the American Psychological Association. His laboratory uses functional magnetic resonance imaging to study the neural systems mediating different aspects of memory, language, and perception. His recent work focuses on the neural bases of social communication and conceptual representations.
