Understanding the difficulty in controlling emotions after stroke
The overall purpose of this research is to make laboratory stroke experiments more reliable and useful for informing how to design human clinical trials with a higher chance of success.
Can training memory and attention on a home computer-task reduce spatial awareness problems after stroke?
Our Research Strategy, the research we fund, how to apply for funding, how to get involved in research, and our research news and events.
Stroke survivors often have very individual hopes for the future, in terms of the goals they would like to achieve. This research will develop and test a Goal setting and Action Planning (G-AP) approach to achieving personal goals through community rehabilitation.
Our 5 year research strategy demonstrates where our vision lies and how we aim to get there.
The Stroke Association is proud to fund key research to answer questions of the utmost importance to the stroke community.
The first NIHR Stroke Research Workshop took place this week, and was hosted at the University of Cambridge.
We heard exciting talks from a range of leaders in the field and early career stroke researchers. As well as the scientific programme, the event was an excellent networking opportunity for the UK stroke research community as a whole.
Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for stroke so that patients in the UK can get the best possible care. Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is safe and effective and these trials often rely on the participation of volunteer stroke survivors.
