Mara Steinberg Lowe

I am a licensed speech-language pathologist pursing a doctoral degree at New York University under the supervision of Dr. Adam Buchwald.  Working as a clinician treating people with acquired communication deficits sparked my interest to learn more about how language is influenced by other cognitive abilities and to research techniques to aid recovery when these processes breakdown.

My current research investigates how individual variations in cognitive abilities, such as inhibition and memory, influence language processing and production in healthy adults.   I also plan to explore how variation in cognitive skills impacts language recovery after brain damage and how to combine behavioral treatments with neurobiological interventions, such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), to enhance treatment efficacy.
