The Oxford Stroke Recovery Research Hub is a network of research groups and clinical collaborators with a shared interest in stroke recovery research.

We study the mechanism which underly and affect recovery, develop methods to assess changes over time, and test novel interventions for boosting outcomes. Combined, our research includes preclinical models, human participants without stroke, chronic stroke survivors living in the community, and patients in hospital.


The network consists of:

  • Physiological Neuroimaging Group
  • Plasticity Group
  • Vision Group
  • Speech and Brain Group
  • Translational Neuropsychology Group
  • Preclinical Stroke Research Group
  • Clinical Collaborators 

You can find out more information about each of the groups in the network below.

Stroke survivors often experience changes in their thinking abilities (cognition). Our aims are to improve the detection of post-stroke cognitive changes and to improve the cognitive support available for stroke survivors.

The vision group at FMRIB uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to look at the structure, function and connectivity of the human visual system. We are interested in the functioning of the visual system in its 'normal' state in sighted individuals, the changes that occur in people who have disorders of the visual system such as visual impairment or binocular dysfunction and the effects of damage or disease.

Our group uses multimodal approaches to understand physiological changes in the brain, both in the context of learning of novel motor skills and in a range of neurological conditions. To do this we use MR Spectroscopy, MR Imaging, Magnetoencephaolography (MEG) and Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation. Ultimately we hope to understand more about how the brain adapts to new challenges, so that we can develop new adjunctive therapies for recovery.
