Understanding the difficulty in controlling emotions after stroke
Can training memory and attention on a home computer-task reduce spatial awareness problems after stroke?
The overall purpose of this research is to make laboratory stroke experiments more reliable and useful for informing how to design human clinical trials with a higher chance of success.

Stroke survivors, carers, family members and friends are experts in what it's like to experience and live with stroke. People affected by stroke are involved in many areas of our work, from helping to decide what research we fund, to collaborating with the researchers we fund on their studies. Find out how you can get involved to help shape stroke research in the future.
Our 5 year research strategy demonstrates where our vision lies and how we aim to get there.
The first NIHR Stroke Research Workshop took place this week, and was hosted at the University of Cambridge.
We heard exciting talks from a range of leaders in the field and early career stroke researchers. As well as the scientific programme, the event was an excellent networking opportunity for the UK stroke research community as a whole.
Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for stroke so that patients in the UK can get the best possible care. Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is safe and effective and these trials often rely on the participation of volunteer stroke survivors.
