Stimulating the brain to help comprehension in aphasia
Junior Research Training Fellowship: Christine Hazelton
A research project to find out if a ‘polypill’ can help reduce the chance that people who have had a stroke will have a heart attack or another stroke.
This research aims to develop a new method of teaching self-management skills after stroke.
This research project will work with stroke survivors and their families. In year one, we will design a healthy living programme for stroke survivors and their families. The programme will provide information, education and support. It will help people to learn how to manage their own lifestyle risk factors.
The aim of this research is to develop and test a simple yet widely-applicable outcome measure for evaluating cognitive rehabilitation after stroke. Consultation with patients and carers will shape the design and content of the measure.
Factors that influence the effectiveness of conversation training for people with aphasia: who benefits most and which tasks really help people to learn new strategies?
This project will develop a special therapy area within ‘Second Life’, an existing virtual reality world on the internet. It will be protected so that only other people with aphasia and specially trained support workers can take part.
