The proposed project is highly significant because it will, for the first time, to accurately map the changes that occur in the brain following stoke and identify patters for good clinical outcomes.

We will also seek to examine psychological and cognitive performance in people after stroke, which is not normally performed. By combining advanced brain imaging with clinical, psychological and cognitive assessments, we hope to profile the mechanism of what we term good patient outcome and poor patient outcome. Using this data, we can then investigate potential interventions aimed at enhancing the recovery of patients who we deem to have a poor prognosis from stroke.
