Disease of the chest portion of the largest artery in the body (the aorta), is known as thoracic aortic disease (TAD). The number of people experiencing TAD is increasing. This study is investigating how to make thoracic endovascular aortic stenting (TEVAR), the preferred method of treating TAD, safer by using extra protection devices.
This study will show whether more intensive lowering of blood pressure (BP) in survivors of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is feasible, safe and effective in reducing brain injury. If successful, the study will pave the way for the design a larger definitive trial.
Thousands of lives a year could be changed thanks to a pilot research study by Imperial College which involves injecting a patient's stem cells into their brain.
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.
Funded by the Wellcome Trust, researchers at Newcastle University have shown that, in monkeys, it is possible to restore hand and arm movement lost through brain damage.
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.
Can training memory and attention on a home computer-task reduce spatial awareness problems after stroke?
Stimulating the brain to help comprehension in aphasia
This research will investigate 2000 drugs that are already known to be safe for use in humans to see if they could help reduce the amount of damage to the brain an intracerebral haemorrhage (a type of stroke caused by a bleed in the brain) causes.
Non-invasive brain stimulation may help re-learning of movement after stroke
