Above are images of a healthy brain, at left, and the areas of the brain damaged in PPA. Home to some of the world’s most-recognized programs of primary progressive aphasia (PPA) research, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has for the past year been the site of a unique multi-laboratory collaboration working to uncover how this debilitating form of dementia develops.

The Language in Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) aims to understand the behavioral, anatomical and physiological changes in people with PPA throughout the course of the illness. The researchers in this study want to increase awareness of PPA, educate others about this unique disorder, and to encourage more research to eventually develop therapies.
The observational primary progressive aphasia (PPA) research program at Northwestern University seeks to study individuals living with PPA over time using neuropsychological testing and advanced imaging techniques. Participants are asked to come to Chicago in order to help: better understand progression in PPA and its link to brain changes.
