Andrew DeMarco, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Assistant Professor, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, GUMC

Dr. DeMarco is an Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine, and director of the DeMarco Advanced Research in Neurorehabilitation (DARN) Lab. He is a cognitive neuroscientist and licensed and ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist.

Dr. DeMarco’s research seeks to understand the neural and cognitive architecture of the speech and language systems, how those systems break down in stroke aphasia, and how they become reorganized via neuroplasticity during recovery. One long-term goal of his research is clinical translation of neuroimaging to enhance decision-making in aphasia neurorehabilitation. His recent NIDCD K99/R00 award focuses on a novel technique, functional anomaly mapping, which may hold promise as a reliable, individualized biomarker for stroke-related dysfunction throughout the brain.
