The Stroke Association held this workshop to set the priorities for research into the psychological consequences of stroke in the UK.
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.
Scientists in Sweden, from Chalmers University of Technology, Sahlgrenska Academy and Sahlgrenska University Hospital, are developing a wearable cap to diagnose whether a clot or a bleed has happened in the brain of someone who has had a stroke.
The Stroke Association funded a feasibility study into improving the treatment of a condition called 'drop foot', which was recently published in the medical journal, Disability & Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.
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.
As part of a new research strategy we are committing ourselves to building the next generation of research leaders. Over the next few years we will support 15 Stroke Association Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Reader positions.
Thousands of stroke survivors with visual problems could improve their sight from the comfort of their own home using two new web-based therapies.
Thousands of people are at risk of stroke because they fail to recognise the signs of a Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA, also known as a mini-stroke), according to the findings of a new poll launched today on World Stroke Day (29 October 2012).
Research in the American Academy of Neurology Journal suggests that strokes are becoming more common at a younger age, with about one in five victims now below the age of 55. Despite this, there is an overall decline in the incidence of stroke.
This Lectureship will explore the link between tests that are used to assess cognition (memory and thinking) after a stroke and measurements of a stroke survivor's functional abilities. It will also investigate how cognition and functional ability change over time.
