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.
Researchers are looking for the conditions of Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) which offer the optimum improvement in re-learning of movement.
This study looks at finding non-invasive brain stimulation to improve word-finding abilities in stroke survivors.
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke.
A new review of research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for recovery of leg movement and walking examines its pros and cons.
This project seeks to use training and a safe and easy way of electrically stimulating the brain to improve recall.
The Stroke Association funded a feasibility study into improving the treatment of a condition called 'drop foot', which was recently published in the medical journal, Disability & Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.
The current study investigates safe, mild, electrical stimulation of the leg, to relieve bladder symptoms caused by stroke.
In stroke survivors, does the clinical effectiveness of 6 months treatment with fluoxetine depend upon its effects on synaptic plasticity in the brain? Can a drug used for depression help stroke recovery by changing connections between brain cells?
