Presented by Dr Brielle C. Stark, Indiana University Bloomington, USA

The concept of “inner speech” will be introduced, as well as operational definitions that the aphasiology field, and other fields, have used.

Different ways of measuring inner speech will be introduced. Then, the talk will focus on several studies conducted in Dr Stark’s lab, comparing/contrasting inner speech measurement, evaluating inner speech in the daily lives of adults with aphasia, and evaluating inner speech as a mechanism spurring recovery after language therapy.
