Dr. Turkeltaub is a cognitive neurologist and neuroscientist whose research investigates the brain's organization for language and other cognitive faculties, how this organization changes in the context of developmental or acquired brain disorders, and how we might enhance recovery. He is the Director of the Cognitive Recovery Lab at Georgetown University and MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital. The lab uses a variety of techniques, primarily TMS, tDCS, fMRI, neuroimaging meta-analysis, and neuropsychology.
