Lauryn Zipse


Lauryn Zipse, PhD, CCC-SLP, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at the MGH Institute of Health Professions.

She specializes in adult neurogenic communication disorders, and in using neuroimaging and electrophysiological methods to investigate these disorders.

Dr. Zipse received her PhD from the Harvard-MIT HST Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology Program, and took courses towards clinical certification in speech-language pathology at the MGH Institute.

She went on to complete a postdoctoral and clinical fellowship at the Music and Neuroimaging Laboratory at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Dr. Zipse's research interests include investigating the cognitive and neurophysiological basis of neurogenic communication disorders such as aphasia.

She is also interested in the prosodic and rhythmic processing abilities involved in speech planning, and the degree to which these abilities may be preserved in aphasia.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
