Public Engagement: Stroke Awareness Event
Report from the Stroke Awareness Event at Experimental Psychology
On Wednesday 25th November, the Cognitive Neuropsychology Centre teamed up with the Stroke Association to arrange a Stroke Awareness Event for the public.
PI of the Physiological Neuroimaging group, Dr Charlie Stagg, was invited to give a short talk on uses of non-invasive brain stimulation in stroke rehabilitation. The group also hosted a stand at the event, chatting to the attendees about their work using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as a potential adjunct therapy for rehabilitation. Pierre Petitet, DPhil student in the Action, Cognition and Neurorehabilitation Group, demonstrated the use of his prism goggles for recovery of hemispatial neglect.
