Can training memory and attention on a home computer-task reduce spatial awareness problems after stroke?
Postgraduate Fellowship: Ms Emma Pilkington (TSA PGF 2015-02)
The purpose of this research is to adapt an existing group psychological support course to make it suitable for stroke.
This research programme could substantially increase our understanding of how SVD develops, leading to new ways to investigate SVD and test drugs which may help treat it.
A stroke won’t just affect you, but everyone around you too. It can put a strain on your relationships and can also affect your sex life. But there are things you can do to help you cope with the impact.
Funded by the European Union (EU), a new international study called PROOF will investigate whether high-dose oxygen therapy can reduce the effects of stroke.
The Stroke Association is a member of the Stroke Alliance For Europe (SAFE), which will work on communication of information about the PROOF trial to non-clinical audiences.
Understanding the difficulty in controlling emotions after stroke
Thousands of stroke survivors with visual problems could improve their sight from the comfort of their own home using two new web-based therapies.
One in five stroke survivors are left with partial or total loss of vision to one side following a stroke. The condition is called hemianopia, and can severely affect a stroke survivor's quality of life.
