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.
Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for stroke so that patients in the UK can get the best possible care. Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is safe and effective and these trials often rely on the participation of volunteer stroke survivors.
