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.
Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) is usually associated with high blood pressure, and causes 20% of all strokes. It is the main cause of cognitive changes and dementia associated with stroke. Behavioural symptoms such as apathy are also common in patients with SVD.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified psychological and cognitive (thinking and mood) problems after stroke as someof the most important areas where more research is needed. This Lectureship will investigate how common these issues are after stroke, how they change over time, and how these changes can be predicted.
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.

Yesterday was day two of this year's UK Stroke Assembly South event in Stansted, Essex. Some of our researchers spoke at the event, sharing important insights into key areas of stroke research. There was also a stand showcasing our EVA Park project, which aims to help stroke survivors with aphasia regain communication skills and confidence.
