Jed Meltzer, PhD

Dr. Jed Meltzer is committed to maximizing the potential of any individual to recover from the devastating effects of stroke. Dr. Meltzer’s team employs the latest in technologies to probe how stroke changes the activity of the brain, and how interventions can help restore abilities including language and hand use. To widen the reach of such interventions to potential clients living far from major cities, Dr. Meltzer seeks to develop inexpensive and scalable tools suitable for home use to aid in the stroke recovery process. These tools include neurofeedback, brain stimulation devices, and telerehabilitation. Last year, collaborating with Speechworks in Winnipeg, Dr. Meltzer completed a study demonstrating that post-stroke speech-language therapy delivered remotely through the internet was equally effective as therapy delivered in person.
