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.

This Eye Colour Linked to Being More Competitive, Egocentric And Skeptical

I have light gray eyes, from German descent. I wonder if this also would correlate to stroke recovery?

Eye colour could reveal an aspect of your personality, study finds.
Lighter eyes have been linked to more egocentric, competitive, skeptical individuals, research finds.
Darker eyes, though, are linked to sympathy, altruism and a higher altruistic behaviour.
The study, which was conducted in Australia, only held for those with Northern European ancestry, though, the study’s authors explain:
“A competitive person is characterised by a tendency to be antagonistic, egocentric, and sceptical of others’ intentions rather than cooperative…
…light-eyed people, whatever their sex, would be more competitive psychologically than dark eyed people if they are of north European descent.”
The authors provide an evolutionary explanation for the difference:
“…the rare-color advantage of light eyed females, is likely to increase the chance of being noticed by a male.
Moreover, competitive personality traits (such as wanting to beat others and being sceptical of others’ intentions) secure the long-term commitment necessary for self and off-spring survival.
Whilst some may argue that it is unlikely that a male would choose a disagreeable female we argue that mating is not the sole choice of males and that the disagreeable traits of competitive women are directed primarily at other female competition rather than towards males.”
The study was published in the journal Current Biology (Gardiner & Jackson, 2010).
