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.

Motor learning in the rehabilitation of stroke - University of Michigan | School of Kinesiology project

Get involved if you can.
http://www.kines.umich.edu/motor-learning-rehabilitation-stroke
Recovery of movement ability post-stroke relies upon the ability to “re-learn” previous skills.
In this National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded project we are investigating how different brain systems involved with learning interact to determine the extent of recovery post-stroke. Further we are assessing the effectiveness of a novel brain stimulation protocol, called transcranial magnetic stimulation, as an addition to stroke rehabilitation.
This project is an important step towards a higher quality of life post-stroke by enhancing functional independence.
For more information on our study or to get involved out our research please contact us at StrokeTMS@umich.edu.
