What maintains stroke survivors’ continued use of self-managed computer therapy for aphasia?
Postgraduate fellowship: What is the impact of damaged thinking ability caused by a spontaneous bleed in the brain?
The findings of this research could help provide stroke survivors and their relatives with more accurate information about what impacts they can expect over time, and will help doctors and therapists identify which patients with visual neglect will benefit the most from new treatments.
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke
Yesterday, a special event was held at Queen's Hospital Romford to showcase its Robotic Assisted Training for the Upper Limb after Stroke (RATULS). Find out more
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.
Two more studies support (thrombectomy) mechanical clot retrieval for stroke.
Vision problems are common after stroke. This Lectureship will investigate the link between the tasks used in vision rehabilitation and everyday visual activities. It will also use brain scanning to investigate the effects of rehabilitation on activity in the areas of the brain responsible for vision.
A new study published in the journal, Clinical Rehabilitation, suggests that a screening tool may help detect post-stroke anxiety in older people. The research was led by Professor Ian Kneebone (University of Technology Sydney, Australia), and was funded by the Stroke Association.
