Speech and language outcomes in survivors of childhood posterior fossa tumours - a lesion-symptom mapping analysis

Charlotte is a speech pathologist currently conducting my research through the Children’s Brain Cancer Centre (CBCC) survivorship program of research. This research aims to use lesion-symptom mapping to generate inferences on the neuroanatomy underlying the long-term adverse speech and language outcomes in survivors of childhood posterior fossa tumours. It is anticipated these findings will be a unique bridge between basic and clinical neuroscientific research, as they may translate into improved patient care by guiding prognosis, treatment and rehabilitation in this population.
