These summaries of our completed research projects highlight what work was undertaken, which aims were achieved and where the research is going next.
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.
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.

New research from Stroke Association Fellow, Dr Anna Kuppuswamy, suggests that feelings of limb heaviness after stroke are not related to actual muscle weakness.
New research review suggests that post-stroke fatigue is a symptom independent of depression, pain and sleep problems, and may depend on the 'excitability' of the movement part of the brain.
New study suggests that task-specific reach-to-grasp training for arm and hand rehabilitation is feasible for stroke survivors to perform, and acceptable for them to do.
