Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a type of stroke, which is caused by bleeding in the brain, ultimately leading to brain damage, disability and often death. We currently know very little about the biological changes that occur in the brain after intracerebral haemorrhage.
On 24 February 2015, researchers at City University launched The CommuniCATE project, looking at enhancing Communication in Aphasia through Technology and Education.
About 80% of strokes are caused by a blocked blood vessel. One third of these patients have a blockage of a large blood vessel in the neck or brain known as large artery occlusion stroke (LAOS).
This study will explore whether an existing therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), can be used for people with aphasia. Information will also be collected to design a future large-scale trial evaluating this approach.
New research suggests significant inequality in vision care after stroke
Published in the journal Age and Ageing, a new systematic review of the current research suggests that anticoagulant drugs may have cognitive benefit for those with AF (atrial fibrillation).
New study suggests that task-specific reach-to-grasp training for arm and hand rehabilitation is feasible for stroke survivors to perform, and acceptable for them to do.
