Lynsey's primary research interests include the interdisciplinary collaboration of speech language pathology and neuroscience in stroke rehabilitation and specifically, the implementation of neuroimaging to explore the recruitment of residual neural networks following a traumatic event, such as stroke. She is involved with a longitudinal language study to research language recovery and the associated neural changes.
