This study is about comparing two treatment strategies in patients with visual problems after stroke, specifically hemianopia.
This project aims to develop and test a repetitive functional task practice (RFTP) therapy programme. Research physiotherapists will develop the programme in conjunction with stroke unit staff and patients.
Fluoxetine is a drug used to relieve depression. A recent French trial suggested it might improve strength recovery in stroke survivors with residual arm weakness.
This research will produce an assessment of functional, everyday reading. The assessment will help therapists working with people with aphasia to identify why the person is finding it difficult to read and monitor the effects of treatment.
Techniques to predict - and in future prevent - brain haemorrhage in people treated with warfarin after stroke caused by atrial fibrillation
In this study, we are testing the theory that by treating BP more intensively we will delay progression of the disease. We will also use state-of-the-art MRI imaging techniques to look at the mechanisms by which any beneficial effect of BP occurs.
This study will explore what ‘confidence’ means to people who have had a stroke, the perceived barriers, and what helps stroke survivors to regain confidence.
Exploring the effects of lowering blood pressure and a lower dose of clot busting drug on stroke outcome
This project seeks to use training and a safe and easy way of electrically stimulating the brain to improve recall.
This study will measure if visual scanning training interventions can help stroke survivors with visual field impairment.
