Cognitive impairments after stroke can affect people’s confidence and mood as well as their ability to recover. PRECiS stands for ‘Patient-Reported Evaluation of Cognitive State’.
Published in the journal, Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, a new Stroke Association funded study suggests people who are in the chronic stages of stroke will improve their reaching accuracy at the speed at which they train their reaching movement.
A new review of research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for recovery of leg movement and walking examines its pros and cons.
New study suggests that task-specific reach-to-grasp training for arm and hand rehabilitation is feasible for stroke survivors to perform, and acceptable for them to do.
A new study shares insights learned from the recruitment of study participants to the 'VISION' trial, and how this may inform future, similar trials.
This study looks at finding non-invasive brain stimulation to improve word-finding abilities in stroke survivors.
These summaries of our completed research projects highlight what work was undertaken, which aims were achieved and where the research is going next.
Testing the idea that fatigue occurring after stroke is due to changes in the brain regions controlling the muscles using non-invasive brain stimulation and brain imaging techniques in 142 stroke patients, half of who will be those who complain of fatigue.
We are yet to understand the differences between those individuals who do and do not spontaneously recover language comprehension abilities. This research aims to uncover these differences.
Researchers are looking for the conditions of Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) which offer the optimum improvement in re-learning of movement.
