Corianne Rogalsky, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science at Arizona State University, a faculty member of the Neuroscience IGDP, and an affiliated faculty of the Department of Psychology at ASU. As director of the Communication Neuroimaging and Neuroscience Laboratory, Dr. Rogalsky's research program investigates the neural computations involved in speech and music perception, and how these processes interact with memory, control, and motor systems. Dr. Rogalsky uses functional MRI, high-resolution structural MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, and neuropsychological methods to study speech recovery in a variety of populations, including patients with stroke, aphasia, and/or epilepsy. Her lab is a member and data hub for the NIH-funded Multi-site Aphasia Research Consortium (MARC). Dr. Rogalsky's work has widespread clinical implications regarding treatment and diagnosis of speech disorders, as well as functional neuroimaging-guided rehabilitation programs.

Megan Fitzhugh, M.S. is a doctoral student in the Neuroscience Interdisciplinary Graduate Program at ASU. She received her master’s degree in Physiological Sciences from the University of Arizona in May 2013. While attending the UA, her research focused on human brain-behavior relationships in the context of healthy aging using MRI paired with measures of cognition, behavior, and other health factors. Her current research focuses on the relationship between speech comprehension and executive functions in older adults. In her spare time she enjoys ceramics, trying to maintain her work-out routine, and cheering on the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Julia received her B.S. in Speech and Hearing Science and minor in Anthropology in May 2015, and is currently pursuing her Master's degree in Communication Disorders at ASU. Previously, she has researched the efficacy of a new preschool curriculum supplemented by continuous professional development and the functional reorganization of speech and music processing in the brain after a stroke through fMRI. She is excited to continue studying the relationship between language and the brain and the effects of stroke on speech processing. In her free time, Julia enjoys hiking, traveling, and binge-watching TV shows on Netflix.

  2. Nicole Blumenstein is an undergraduate student in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the Barrett Honors College. She is a long way from her hometown of Chicago, getting her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and also doing pre-med studies. When she isn't studying, working in the lab, or singing, Nicole is exploring her recent passion for the Ukulele and is hiking some of the awesome trails in Arizona (and at times doing both).
