This lecture is part of the Neurosciences in the evening series and will be given by Dr Wai-Ling Bickerton, Dr Magda Chechlacz and Dr Pia Rotshtein of the Behavioural Brian Sciences Centre, School of Psychology, University of Birmingham.

There are around 150,000 strokes in the UK each year and treating stroke represents one of the largest costs to the NHS – hence it is critical to understand the nature of the problems faced by stroke patients and to develop new rehabilitation services to help stroke victims. Recently there have been important developments in understanding cognitive problems after stroke and there are emerging new procedures for aiding rehabilitation. In this talk we will highlight the new developments in this field and what we may hope for in the future.
