Roadblocks to Stroke Recovery


Event Details


50,000 Kiwis of all ages live with the consequences of stroke.

New Zealand researchers have discovered that during the first few weeks after stroke, the ‘brakes are on’, reducing communication between areas of the brain.

Otago University’s Brain Research Centre and other New Zealand researchers are at the leading edge of new discoveries about what happens in the brain after stroke, and how to improve recovery.

In Queenstown as part of Health Research Week, OU stroke neuroscience experts Dr Andrew Clarkson and Associate Professor Cathy Stinear will discuss this and look at some of the resultant questions – like can we take the brakes off? Does this improve recovery? And which people are most likely to benefit from this approach?
