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:

Neurofeedback In Ischemic Stroke Rehabilitation

Have your doctor get this protocol.
Mónica Isabel Maio dos Santos Bologna Master Degree in Biomedical Technologies,
Instituto Superior Técnico, Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal

The main goal of this project is to study the efficiency of the neurofeedback in the ischemic
stroke rehabilitation in a subject who has suffered from it for more than 6 months.
Besides, its aim is also to develop  a  compact  training  protocol.  A case study was 
developed in a  61-year-old  man  who  had suffered from a left   middle   cerebral   artery
ischemic   stroke   in   2014.   The   protocol   of   the   study accomplished 5 interviews.
They consisted on the recording of the EEG baseline signal.  It also consisted on  the
accomplishment of 4 tests  which  evaluated the  motor  and  sensorial  capacity,  the  static  and dynamic balance, the cognitive capacity and the psychological state. There were
neurofeedback intensive trainings during 8 days.  At this period of time 31 sessions were performed. The patient got better in the grasping  level.
It  could  be  verified  a  positive trend during  the  interviews in  the  baseline  signal  in  C3
electrode. It  could  also  be  observed  an  IAB  increase  in  the  Oz  electrode which  was  not  the  training electrode.
It seems that there is a positive relation between the C3 alpha training and the grasping
results. Its training influences not only the alpha amplitude in this electrode but also in the Oz electrode.
