Published in the JNNP (Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry), new research suggests that a computer technique could help predict how well stroke survivors respond to language therapies for aphasia.
How we take part in EU funded research, details of current projects and how you can join us.
Clinical Study in the field of stroke, awarded jointly between the Stroke Association and the British Heart Foundation.
As part of our five-year research strategy we have made a commitment to working with others to achieve a clear vision about the future priorities for stroke research.
Project Grants cover the whole spectrum of stroke research - from prevention and risk factors, through to treatment and rehabilitation in a clinical setting and longer-term in the community.
The Mobile Assistance for Groups and Individuals in the Community (MAGIC) project is funded by a €3.6m (£2.7m) award from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. It is managed by a Northern Ireland led international consortium of research, governmental and independent organisations.
The group meets weekly and is a safe and welcoming place for members to socialise with other stroke survivors.
Our incredible volunteers tell us about their stories about their time volunteering with the Stroke Association.
The recovery of stroke survivors with language difficulties is famously variable. Some stroke survivors recover much more quickly or fully than others. Some respond to treatment much better than others.
Inflammation is an important defence mechanism that the body uses in response to injury or infection. However, it can also be highly damaging to the brain directly after stroke. This study will investigate whether adult stem cells can be transformed and used to reduce inflammation in the brain after stroke, and promote recovey.
