The research interests of Rene L. Utianski, Ph.D., include neurogenic motor speech disorders (the dysarthrias and apraxia of speech), degenerative language disorders (aphasia), and functional speech disturbances. The focus of her research is to define the distinguishing clinical and acoustical characteristics of these neurological disorders, establish their neurological and electrophysiological correlates, and refine their differential diagnoses.
Dr. Utianski's research contributes to more accurate clinical diagnosis and prognostication of degenerative speech and language disorders. Her research has implications for early identification of certain neurological diseases, their early medical treatment when effective treatments become available, and appropriate prognostication that parlays into education and counseling for patients and their families.
