Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans provide lots of data on the health of a person’s brain, not all of which is routinely used in clinical practice. This project will continue the development of tools to assess the brain scans of people with stroke.
Development of new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to image vessel patterns and blood flow in patients with disease of their vertebral arteries
Co-funded by the Stroke Association, and published in the International Journal of Stroke, research suggests a new tool can better predict what level of memory and thinking (cognitive) problems patients will experience after stroke, than more time consuming methods.
The aim of this research programme is to develop a human brain bank to support biomedical research into the pathophysiology of human SVD that may be used nationally and internationally.
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
Using trans-cranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke
Can emergency treatment be extended to those waking up with a stroke?

Do Naturally Produced Cells in the Brain Contribute to Repairing the Damage Done by Stroke?
Techniques to predict - and in future prevent - brain haemorrhage in people treated with warfarin after stroke caused by atrial fibrillation
