Some of the most common effects of stroke are physical and include things like muscle weakness and fatigue. This guide describes some of the physical effects of stroke and explains how they are diagnosed and treated.
Testing the idea that fatigue occurring after stroke is due to changes in the brain regions controlling the muscles using non-invasive brain stimulation and brain imaging techniques in 142 stroke patients, half of who will be those who complain of fatigue.
We’re finding out what questions in stroke research are the most important to people affected by stroke, and to the healthcare professionals that work with them.
The process that we're going through has been developed by the James Lind Alliance, and it's called a Priority Setting Partnership (PSP).
