We are delighted to announce that we are now launching our Priority Programme Awards in two areas: haemorrhagic stroke, and the psychological consequences of stroke.
The Stroke Association held this workshop to set the priorities for research into the psychological consequences of stroke in the UK.
The Stroke Association held this workshop to set the priorities for haemorrhagic stroke research in the UK.
As part of a new research strategy we are committing ourselves to building the next generation of research leaders. Over the next few years we will support 15 Stroke Association Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader positions.
This Lectureship will explore the link between tests that are used to assess cognition (memory and thinking) after a stroke and measurements of a stroke survivor's functional abilities. It will also investigate how cognition and functional ability change over time.
Vision problems are common after stroke. This Lectureship will investigate the link between the tasks used in vision rehabilitation and everyday visual activities. It will also use brain scanning to investigate the effects of rehabilitation on activity in the areas of the brain responsible for vision.
Small Vessel Disease (SVD) is a disease of the small blood vessels in the brain and can lead to stroke and dementia. At the moment, we don't know how to stop SVD developing, or how to treat it. This Lectureship aims to improve future clinical trials that aim to prevent SVD.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified problems with thinking and mood after stroke as some of the most important issues faced after a stroke. This Lectureship aims to test treatments to help stroke survivors with their cognitive (thinking) difficulties.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified psychological and cognitive (thinking and mood) problems after stroke as someof the most important areas where more research is needed. This Lectureship will investigate how common these issues are after stroke, how they change over time, and how these changes can be predicted.
