Testing the idea that fatigue occurring after stroke is due to changes in the brain regions controlling the muscles using non-invasive brain stimulation and brain imaging techniques in 142 stroke patients, half of who will be those who complain of fatigue.
Non-invasive brain stimulation may help re-learning of movement after stroke
Non-invasive brain stimulation to improve word-finding abilities in stroke survivors
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke.
Co-funded by the Stroke Association, a new review of the research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for the recovery of leg movement and walking suggests that although it can bring about changes in leg function, the design of existing studies are very different, making it difficult to determine its effectiveness.
Stimulating the brain to help comprehension in aphasia
The Stroke Association funded a feasibility study into improving the treatment of a condition called 'drop foot', which was recently published in the medical journal, Disability & Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.
Can electrical stimulation of the leg alleviate bladder problems caused by stroke?
In stroke survivors, does the clinical effectiveness of 6 months treatment with fluoxetine depend upon its effects on synaptic plasticity in the brain? Can a drug used for depression help stroke recovery by changing connections between brain cells?
