Neurorehabilitation and Recovery Group

The potential to drive adaptive neural plastic changes through rehabilitation is enormous and likely to lead to major changes in rehabilitation practice and better outcomes for stroke survivors.

We do not yet have effective means of identifying individuals who may benefit from therapy nor how to select the most optimal therapy for an individual. The Neurorehabilitation and Recovery research program focuses on stroke recovery: in particular how the brain adapts and how we can harness that potential in rehabilitation. The research involves development of novel rehabilitation approaches and personalised stroke rehabilitation informed by neuroscience. MRI is used to investigate how changes in the brain can help target rehabilitation most optimally to individual stroke survivors. Our research also examines factors, such as depression and cognition, that impact on stroke recovery. An important focus is to translate these discoveries into clinical practice and better outcomes for stroke survivors.
