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:

Incorporating Music Into Rehab Sessions Could Benefit Physical Therapy Patients

Well fuck, this has been known for years. Are you that fucking incompetent that you are just now getting to this research and applying it?
If your doctor and hospital haven't set up music protocols for stroke they are completely incompetent.  Incompetent all the way back to March 2011, who has been fired for that incompetence?

40 posts on music therapy.  Back to Oct. 2014

72 posts on music  Back to March 2011
University of Edinburgh researchers suggest that listening to music while performing basic tasks may help strengthen the linked structures between brain regions that control one’s understanding of sounds and physical movement.
This finding could help physical therapists create rehab programs for stroke patients or others who experience motor function problems, according to a news story published by Paste magazine.
In the study, published recently in the journal Brain & Cognition, researchers divided 30 participants—all of whom were right-handed—into two groups, with the goal of learning a new task involving sequences of finger movements with the non-dominant, left hand.
One group learned the task using musical cues, the other did not incorporate music.
After 4 weeks of practice, both groups learned the finger sequences equally well.
However, using MRI scans, the researchers note that participants in the music group showed a significant increase in structural connectivity in the white matter tract that links auditory and motor regions on the right side of the brain. The non-music group showed no change, according to a media release from the University of Edinburgh.
“The study suggests that music makes a key difference. We have long known that music encourages people to move,” says Dr Katie Overy, research team leader, in the release.
“This study provides the first experimental evidence that adding musical cues to learning new motor task can lead to changes in white matter structure in the brain,” she adds.
The researchers’ future plans are to perform a larger study with larger numbers of participants, to examine whether music can provide an aid with specific kinds of motor rehabilitation programs, such as those with post-stroke patients.
