Can training memory and attention on a home computer-task reduce spatial awareness problems after stroke?
The findings of this research could help provide stroke survivors and their relatives with more accurate information about what impacts they can expect over time, and will help doctors and therapists identify which patients with visual neglect will benefit the most from new treatments.
Vision problems are common after stroke. This Lectureship will investigate the link between the tasks used in vision rehabilitation and everyday visual activities. It will also use brain scanning to investigate the effects of rehabilitation on activity in the areas of the brain responsible for vision.
This guide talks about some common problems that can happen because of this and what you can do about them. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke.
This complete guide explains how a stroke can affect the way your brain understands, organises and stores information. It also talks about the kinds of problems this can cause and what you can do about them. It’s aimed at people who have had a stroke and their family and friends.
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
Pain in the shoulder is a common problem after stroke. As well as causing distress through pain and lost sleep, it prevents rehabilitation of the arm and hand. This study will identify ‘who’, ‘when’ and ‘how’ to treat people with painful shoulders after stroke more effectively, and should lead to better outcomes for them.
What maintains stroke survivors’ continued use of self-managed computer therapy for aphasia?
A pilot study for developing and evaluating a care pathway for cognitive problems after stroke
The aim of this research is to develop and test a simple yet widely-applicable outcome measure for evaluating cognitive rehabilitation after stroke. Consultation with patients and carers will shape the design and content of the measure.
