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.

Cold temperatures perceived in a photo increase cognitive control

Your doctor should be using this to maximize the long-term best interests of the individual. Looking at the incredibly long and unknown path to 100% recovery you need lots of cognitive control, persistence, perserverance and resilience.

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers have demonstrated that the perception of cold temperatures elicits greater cognitive control, even from a photo.
"Metaphorical phrases like 'coldly calculating,' 'heated response,' and 'cool-headed' actually have some scientific validity, which we demonstrate in our study," says lead researcher Dr. Idit Shalev of the BGU Department of Education. Dr. Shalev conducted the research with Prof. Nachshon Meiran of the BGU Department of Psychology and their Ph.D. student, Eliran Halali, now of the Department of Psychology at Bar-Ilan University.
"Previous research focused on the actual effect of on the psychological phenomenon known as ','" says Dr. Shalev. "But this is the first time we were able to measure the effects of perceived temperature." The study, "Keep it Cool: Temperature Priming Effect on Cognitive Control," was published in Psychological Research.
Cognitive is the ability to deliberately inhibit responses or make choices that maximize the long-term best interests of the individual. For example, when a person is very hungry and sees a sandwich but does not eat it, he is exhibiting cognitive control.
The researchers conducted two experiments for the study. In the first, 87 students performed an "anti-saccade task," which requires looking in the opposite direction an object is moving and measures cognitive control. In the second experiment, 28 students were shown images of winter scenery, a temperature-neutral concrete street and a sunny landscape, and told to picture themselves in those settings.
"The result indicated that those viewing the cold landscape did better and that even without a physical trigger, cognitive control can be activated through conceptual processes alone," says Dr. Shalev.
The researchers state there is a possible explanation for the relation of temperature and cognitive control with social proximity. "While signals of warmth induce a relaxed attitude, cool signals trigger alertness and a possible need for greater cognitive control."
