Dr. Hashimoto’s research interest involves the examination of lexical-semantic deficits in individuals with aphasia. The deficits found in these individuals are interpreted within the context of a cognitive neuropsychology approach. Methodologies such as on-line measures and the more traditional assessment batteries are used to examine how various aspects of the lexical-semantic (word meaning) system operates in the brains of neurologically intact individuals and individuals with aphasia.
Another research interest is the use of theory-based treatment approaches to improve linguistic deficits in individuals with aphasia. This work involves the case study approach, where detailed, in-depth analyses of an individual’s linguistic performance is carried out.
