Stimulating the brain to help comprehension in aphasia
A major new national research programme using robot assisted training to help NHS stroke patients regain movement in their affected arm, has been officially launched in the North East.
On Wednesday, a prestigious seminar was held at Northwick Park Hospital, London.
UK Stroke Forum 2016 took place from Monday to Wednesday (28-30 November) at the ACC in Liverpool. UK Stroke Forum is the largest multidisciplinary stroke event in the UK, attracting over 1400 delegates from across the stroke care pathway.
This research will produce an assessment of functional, everyday reading. The assessment will help therapists working with people with aphasia to identify why the person is finding it difficult to read and monitor the effects of treatment.
This fellowship aims to develop, tailor and target the delivery of a 6-week group intervention that offers educational, psychological and social support for people following TIA and minor stroke.
Non-invasive brain stimulation may help re-learning of movement after stroke
