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 candidate 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.
