Functional, cognitive and emotional outcomes after Transient Ischemic Attack: A prospective, controlled cohort study to inform future rehabilitative interventions (FACE TIA)
Stroke survivors and their relatives consistently ask for information about how much recovery can be expected. This study will look at how well a patient can use their arm after stroke, and at their brain images recorded within 72-hours after stroke. The hope is that brain images can improve our prediction of patient arm movement recovery at six months after stroke.
