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.
