Improving our prediction of recovering language abilities after stroke.
The recovery of stroke survivors with language difficulties is famously variable. Some stroke survivors recover much more quickly or fully than others. Some respond to treatment much better than others.
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.
Published in Stroke, a new study sheds light on a tool doctors might use to help them predict the recovery of stroke patients in the future.
Published online first in the journal Neurology, a new study investigates the effectiveness of tools used to predict recovery of patients after stroke.
This Lectureship will explore the link between tests that are used to assess cognition (memory and thinking) after a stroke and measurements of stroke survivor's functional abilities. It will also investigate how cognition and functional ability change over time.
A stroke is not something you prepare for. So you’re going to have a lot of questions when it happens. That’s why we’re here. We’ve tackled some of the questions that you're likely to have, including details of how to find out more.
Find out more about the different types of stroke and why they happen.
No two strokes are alike - the damage from each stroke leaves its own unique signature on a person's brain and behaviour. The current project will investigate how different types of stroke affect a person's long term recovery or deterioration
Published in the JNNP (Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry), new research suggests that a computer technique could help predict how well stroke survivors respond to language therapies for aphasia.
