The role of the non-affected side of the brain in recovering upper arm and shoulder movements after stroke
Can stem cells be used to reduce the damage of inflammation after stroke and promote brain repair?
In this project, the aim is to demonstrate that failure of drainage of fluid from the grey and white matter of the brain is a mechanism underlying SVD.
In this study we are testing the theory that by treating BP more intensively we will delay progression of the disease. We will also use state-of-the-art MRI imaging techniques to look at the mechanisms by which any beneficial effect of BP occurs.

Using trans-cranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke
Can an anti-inflammatory drug (IL-1Ra) given into the skin reduce damaging inflammation in the brain and body after stroke compared to a dummy-drug?
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by disease or injury. This causes the structure of the brain to change, leading to the loss of some brain cells.
This study will investigate whether more intensive lowering of blood pressure (BP) in survivors of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is feasible, safe and effective in reducing brain injury.
