Postgraduate fellowship: What is the impact of damaged thinking ability caused by a spontaneous bleed in the brain?
The European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2018 took place between 16-18 May in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Some people can experience post-stroke seizures. A small number of people go on to develop epilepsy, which is a tendency to have repeated seizures. Find out about the different types of seizures and how epilepsy is diagnosed and treated.
Around 30% of survivors experience pain after stroke. Post-stroke pain includes muscle and joint pain such as spasticity and shoulder pain. Learn about the causes and treatments.
This research investigates the use of non-invasive brain stimulation to see whether low 'excitability' of the brain causes fatigue after stroke.
This guide talks about some common problems that can happen because of this and what you can do about them. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke.
This study will test arm training to encourage a functionally useful contribution to recovery from the side of the brain unaffected by stroke (the 'non-stroke hemisphere'), and whether this is only possible early after stroke.
A stroke often causes problems with bladder and bowel control. These usually improve in the early weeks after the stroke, but around a third of stroke survivors may have longer term difficulties.
Exploring the causes of ‘jargon speech’ through electrophysiology and using it to help stroke survivors that deal with it.
This study will investigate whether adult stem cells can be transformed and used to reduce inflammation in the brain after stroke, and promote recovery.
