Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Brain network analysis: a practical tutorial

Ask your doctor how your stroke disrupted your brain networks. Specifics only, not generic crap your doctor will try to pass off as knowledgeable. What protocols will fix those networks?

How are our brains wired? How are pathways between neurons organized? What patterns of connections allow us to think the way we do, or distinguish our ways of thinking from those of other animals? These and related questions are the bread and butter of an excellent new textbook.
FUNDAMENTALS OF BRAIN NETWORK ANALYSIS
By Alex Fornito, Andrew Zalesky and Edward Bullmore, 2016 Elsevier (Academic Press) ISBN 978-0-12-407908-3 Price: £60.99
Fundamentals of Brain Network Analysis by Fornito, Zalesky and Bullmore, is a thorough and didactic presentation of the tools available to research scientists wishing to engage in the emerging field of network neuroscience (Bullmore and Sporns, 2009). Blending computational tools and mathematical frameworks from physics, engineering, statistics, and computer science with the reams of data now being collected from diverse neural systems, network neuroscience is a truly interdisciplinary and ground-breaking field poised to transform our understanding of the brain. Rather than focusing solely on the function of single neurons or brain regions, these efforts expand the purview of our interests to the pattern of interactions between neural …
