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.
My back ground story is here:

Call for papers - Rehabilitation Induced Neural Plasticity after Acquired Brain Injury

Neuroplasticity has been known for years and yet no one seems to have the brains or innovative idea to actually write up a protocol on this. We really don't need more repetitive neuroplasticity research. All we are getting now is minor variations which are useless. Write up the commonality or specifically research why neurons change their allegiance.
This is where a strategy and leadership becomes important. I bet most of the current neuroplasticity research is totally wasted.
 Call for Papers

The body of knowledge on the reorganization patterns of the central nervous system (CNS) after brain lesion (e.g., stroke or traumatic brain injury) is continuously increasing and changing as a function of the development of new computational tools for data analysis. The wide availability of imaging (e.g., structural and functional MRI and MEG) and neurophysiological (e.g., PEM and TMS) techniques for the study of structural and functional modifications of the CNS after brain lesion has allowed scientists to explore whether rehabilitation modalities might act as key factors to induce neural plasticity. In neurorehabilitation, neural and cortical plasticity are mostly intended like a combination of spontaneous recovery and goal-directed reorganisation induced by therapeutic modalities.

This special issue offers the opportunity to contribute original research articles as well as review articles to discuss the mechanisms acting for the restoration of functions after acquired brain injury. We are particularly interested in articles describing new insights into neural plasticity induced by known effective rehabilitation treatments, thus promoting the recovery of neurological functions after acquired brain injury.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

    Neurorehabilitation of acquired brain injury
    Imaging and neurophysiology of mechanisms underpinning the recovery of motor and cognitive functions
    Computational modelling of plasticity and learning to predict rehabilitation recovery
    Biological factors promoting neural plasticity in people undergoing neurorehabilitation
    Innovative rehabilitation modalities promoting neural reorganisation (e.g., brain/body-machine interface and invasive/noninvasive brain stimulation)
