People can experience a range of changes to their mood and thinking after a stroke. While we have information about these changes in the short-term (up to 12 months) after stroke, we don’t know much about the longer term changes. This research aims to find out more about how thinking and mood are affected long-term after stroke.
Find out more about the different types of stroke and why they happen.

An ischaemic stroke happens when a blood clot, or other blockage, cuts off the blood supply to your brain. This is the most common type of stroke.

This research will investigate a computer based version of a new treatment for spatial neglect after stroke.
