NATALIE COVINGTON, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

Dr. Natalie V. Covington is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences at the University of Minnesota. Her research focuses on understanding and accounting for heterogeneity in cognitive recovery in individuals with a history of traumatic brain injury. She also studies how language and memory systems interact to support human communication.

 

Her interests in these two cognitive domains converge in a new line of work investigating susceptibility to misinformation in general and clinical populations. How do individual differences in memory and language ability impact susceptibility to, and retention of, misinformation? What interventions are most effective for correcting misinformation?

 

Across these research areas, she has a particular interest in improving measurement and research practices, so that research findings are replicable, generalizable, and clinically-applicable.
