These summaries of our completed research projects highlight what work was undertaken, which aims were achieved and where the research is going next.
Recently featured on the European Commission's Digital Economy news, the COGWATCH project helps stroke survivors to remaster sequential tasks of everyday living.
First results from the AVERT, early rehabilitation trial were unveiled at the European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESO) today.
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified problems with thinking and mood after stroke as some of the most important issues faced after a stroke. This Lectureship aims to test treatments to help stroke survivors with their cognitive (thinking) difficulties.
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.
Thousands of stroke survivors with visual problems could improve their sight from the comfort of their own home using two new web-based therapies.
