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.
This research project aims to better understand how particular features of the CT scan can be used to make better treatment decisions for patients with ischaemic stroke, and whether we can accurately estimate the time since the stroke began.
Predicting people at risk of sub-arachnoid haemorrhage
Using trans-cranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke
Does intensive blood pressure and cholesterol lowering prevent loss of cognition after stroke?
The effect of cerebrospinal fluid drainage on brain oxygenation and haemodynamics after subarachnoid haemorrhage
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans provide lots of data on the health of a person’s brain, not all of which is routinely used in clinical practice. This project will continue the development of tools to assess the brain scans of people with stroke.
Exploring the effects of lowering blood pressure and a lower dose of clot busting drug on stroke outcome
Although speech and language therapists (SLTs) may help aphasia patients with their rehabilitation, there remains a clear lack of evidence-based treatments available for them to help their patients with problems of everyday talking, known as ‘discourse’. This study aims to address both the need for evidence-based treatments and improvement of clinical expertise to address discourse problems af
