About StrokeCog

Intervention Through Collaboration

Overview

StrokeCog 

Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide and will increase considerably in coming decades as people live longer. Many people are aware of the physical disabilities after stroke but are less aware that of the cognitive problems that can also arise, such as impaired memory and concentration. Often, stroke survivors can find these problems the most debilitating consequences.

Cognitive Impairment 

While cognitive impairment after stroke is frequently mild or moderate, one in ten people can develop dementia after their first stroke, and more than one in three people who have a recurrent stroke may develop dementia.

Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation of cognitive difficulties has received very little attention compared with physical rehabilitation. StrokeCog aims to address the lack of research in this area by examining stroke-related cognitive impairment in a number of ways.
