Can cooling patients reduce the amount of brain damage and disability caused by a stroke?
This research project aims to better understand how particular features of the CT scan can be used to make better treatment decisions for patients with ischaemic stroke, and whether we can accurately estimate the time since the stroke began.

Can electrical stimulation of the leg alleviate bladder problems caused by stroke?
In a study published in the journal, The Lancet Neurology, scientists analysed data from more than 1,600 adults with cavernoma - a cluster of abnormal blood vessels in the brain - to generate estimates of risk. The findings could help both doctors and patients to make informed decisions about their treatment.
