Karen Croot, PhD
Karen Croot is Lecturer for Applied Cognitive Psychology at the University of Sydney.
Her research focus is on the area of neuropsychology and neurolinguistics. She is interested in the process of phonological encoding and articulation. She analyzes these processes through the investigation of the speech and language impediments which can appear as a result of dementia, strokes or following traumatic brain injuries.
Karen Croot will be at the CAS as a visiting fellow in December 2012 and January 2013 following an invitation by Prof. Adrian Danek, Prof. Marianne Dieterich and Prof. Wolfram Ziegler as part of the CAS research focus "Dementia in an aging society". One goal of her visit is the development of a common therapy study on the syndrome of primary progressive aphasia for German-speaking patients. On 17 January 2013, Karen Croot will give a lecture at the CAS entitled "The Whole Picture is the Whole Person: Clinical Management Pathways for Primary Progressive Aphasia".
