In this study, we are testing the theory that by treating BP more intensively we will delay progression of the disease. We will also use state-of-the-art MRI imaging techniques to look at the mechanisms by which any beneficial effect of BP occurs.
This study will examine some of the biological pathways involved when blood in the brain causes brain cells to die.
This project will focus on people with aphasia who have difficulty understanding the specific meanings of everyday words. As a result they may not be able to understand what people are saying, so communicating in everyday situations is hard.
This research will produce an assessment of functional, everyday reading. The assessment will help therapists working with people with aphasia to identify why the person is finding it difficult to read and monitor the effects of treatment.
