The aim of this research is to systematically assess what keeps stroke survivors using computerised speech and language therapy at home.
Techniques to predict - and in future prevent - brain haemorrhage in people treated with warfarin after stroke caused by atrial fibrillation
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.
Everyday talking involves being able to understand sentences, something that can be affected by aphasia. This research will design and test a new therapy which aims to help improve understanding of everyday sentences in people with aphasia.
This project seeks to use training and a safe and easy way of electrically stimulating the brain to improve recall.
This study will collect robust data on blood pressure variability (BPV) in stroke patients, to understand how it is related to future stroke risk and recovery from stroke.
Video interview highlights from ten key trials that were presented at the 2nd European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC 2016).
A new review of research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for recovery of leg movement and walking examines its pros and cons.
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.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified problems with thinking and mood after stroke as some of the most important issues faced after a stroke. This Lectureship aims to test treatments to help stroke survivors with their cognitive (thinking) difficulties.
