Building the field of research to support people coping with psychological difficulties after stroke
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified problems with thinking and mood after stroke as some of the most important issues faced after a stroke. This Lectureship aims to test treatments to help stroke survivors with their cognitive (thinking) difficulties.
Understanding the emotional, thinking and memory problems that can follow a stroke
Stroke survivors and healthcare professionals have identified psychological and cognitive (thinking and mood) problems after stroke as someof the most important areas where more research is needed. This Lectureship will investigate how common these issues are after stroke, how they change over time, and how these changes can be predicted.
Linking formal and functional measures of cognition after stroke and the prediction of long-term recovery
This Lectureship will explore the link between tests that are used to assess cognition (memory and thinking) after a stroke and measurements of a stroke survivor's functional abilities. It will also investigate how cognition and functional ability change over time.

A virtual shopping experience to detect thinking problems after stroke and the effect on everyday life
This research can help to improve research and care for complex thinking problems that stand in the way of a stroke survivor’s abilities to undertake everyday activities.
Understanding the nature and impact of long term psychological changes (thinking, mood and fatigue) after stroke
This research aims to find out more about how thinking and mood are affected long-term after stroke, and the impact it has on people’s lives.

Problems with memory and thinking (cognitive problems)
This page explains why you may have problems with memory or thinking after a stroke, why these problems happen and how they can be treated.
A national, collaborative study to improve our understanding of longer term memory and thinking problems after stroke
This programme of work had been created by experts in stroke and vascular dementia working with people affected by both conditions. This research programme aims to find out who will develop memory and thinking problems after stroke, why this happens, and how we can treat these issues.
