Fabulous Young Stroke Research Forum

by Jan Chamberlain In November we were pleased to host a forum devoted to young stroke, where we heard the latest research and discussed the experiences of young stroke survivors.  A/Prof Sean Dukelow from the University of Calgary’s Stroke Robotics and Recovery Lab kicked off the afternoon with a talk on robotics in stroke rehabilitation. The [...]

Pint of Science – Newcastle

by Gillian Mason Gillian Mason was extra lucky in May to back up from Spotlight on Stroke and talk all things stroke and brain science with Sarah Valkenborghs and Dr Lin Kooi Ong at The Edwards bar for the Newcastle leg of the international Pint of Science festival. This festival sees researchers chat about science [...]

Spotlight on Stroke

by Gillian Mason Newcastle stroke survivors say to me regularly that they’d like to see more of our researchers, to understand what’s going on in the ‘fancy building on the hill’ and find out what our work means for them. Some share that they feel that health professionals and researchers might not actually know what [...]

Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable – June 2018 update

By Karen Borschmann, on behalf of  the Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable The first Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable (SRRR), held in Philadelphia in 2016, was a major international collaborative effort that set the scene for a new direction in recovery research. This collaboration demonstrated that the international community is on the same page in [...]

Agreed definitions and a shared vision for new standards in stroke recovery research: The Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable taskforce

Abstract The first Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable established a game changing set of new standards for stroke recovery research. Common language and definitions were required to develop an agreed framework spanning the four working groups: translation of basic science, biomarkers of stroke recovery, measurement in clinical trials and intervention development and reporting. This paper [...]

Enhancing the alignment of the preclinical and clinical stroke recovery research pipeline: Consensus-based core recommendations from the Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable translational working group

Abstract Stroke recovery research involves distinct biological and clinical targets compared to the study of acute stroke. Guidelines are proposed for the pre-clinical modeling of stroke recovery and for the alignment of pre-clinical studies to clinical trials in stroke recovery. To download the free paper click here. Listen to a podcast with Dr Dale Corbett [...]

Biomarkers of stroke recovery: Consensus-based core recommendations from the Stroke Recovery and Rehabilitation Roundtable

Abstract The most difficult clinical questions in stroke rehabilitation are “What is this patient’s potential for recovery?” and “What is the best rehabilitation strategy for this person, given her/his clinical profile?” Without answers to these questions, clinicians struggle to make decisions regarding the content and focus of therapy, and researchers design studies that inadvertently mix [...]

Building an imaging database

By Tom Lillicrap The days of thinking that the brain cannot recover from injury after a severe insult are well and truly behind us and there is a wealth of animal data indicating that not only does injury provoke immense recovery mechanisms but that these mechanisms affect the whole brain. However we are still trying [...]

Harnessing the brain’s capacity to overcome disability
