Melissa Duff, PhD, CCC-SLP
Dr. Melissa Duff is the director of the Communication and Memory Laboratory. Her research focuses on the role of memory in language and social interaction. Her work pays special attention to the role of the hippocampal dependent memory system in language use and processing and in flexible cognition more broadly. The lab combines neuropsychological, neuroimaging, and eye-tracking methods together with behavioral methods to address questions about the dynamic network of neural and cognitive systems that support memory and language in the everyday communicative settings and tasks. Dr. Duff also conducts work in the area of acquired brain injury and is interested in factors that influence long-term outcome. Dr. Duff has an established record of research funding from the National Institutes of Health, and is the author of more than 75 research publications. She is the recipient of the 2010 Award for Early Career Contributions in Research by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and was named Deans Scholar in 2015 at the University of Iowa where she was a faculty member until 2016.
