Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified psychological and cognitive (thinking and mood) problems after stroke as someof the most important areas where more research is needed. This Lectureship will investigate how common these issues are after stroke, how they change over time, and how these changes can be predicted.
This research aims to find out more about how thinking and mood are affected long-term after stroke, and the impact it has on people’s lives.
This study will explore whether an existing therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), can be used for people with aphasia. Information will also be collected to design a future large-scale trial evaluating this approach.
Problems of mood, thinking and memory are common after a stroke. There has been limited research around these issues. This work aims to answer fundamental questions around who develops these problems and how they recover.
This project aims to find out if peer support can avert some of the adverse psychological consequences of aphasia.
About one-third of stroke survivors are left with aphasia. This is a language disorder that disrupts the production and comprehension of speech, as well as reading and writing. This study will investigate whether a support group intervention can be delivered remotely to people with aphasia through a virtual island platform called Eva Park.
Some of our researchers were talking at this week's UK Stroke Assembly North event in Crewe. They shared important insights into areas of stroke research that people affected by stroke have said are really important to them.
