'Amazing Brains: The Remote Revolution' will celebrate progress and innovation in the latest stroke research. This year, the event will take place virtually on 27 May 2021, from 7.30-9pm.
Amazing Brains: Research to Recovery. Previously known as our Keynote Lecture, our event took place on Wednesday, 15 May 2019, at the Science Museum in central London.
The pandemic has hit stroke research hard. We need your help to save it.
Your brain is amazing! It has the ability to re-wire itself, allowing you to improve skills such as walking, talking and using your affected arm. This process is known as neuroplasticity. Plasticity means your brain's ability to change. It begins after a stroke, and it can continue for years,

A stroke in the brain stem can cause the very rare condition of locked-in syndrome, where the person is conscious but unable to move apart from their eyes.
Around 15% of strokes are haemorrhagic (due to bleeding in or around the brain). This guide explains the two different types of stroke caused by a bleed, intracerebral and subarachnoid haemorrhage, and how they are diagnosed and treated.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans provide lots of data on the health of a person’s brain, not all of which is routinely used in clinical practice. This project will continue the development of tools to assess the brain scans of people with stroke.
The aim of this research programme is to develop a human brain bank to support biomedical research into the pathophysiology of human SVD that may be used nationally and internationally.
