Language and memory problems after a stroke

Study summary

People who have had a stroke often experience language and memory problems (called aphasia).  This could be problems with speaking, finding the right words for things or understanding others.

Researchers are interested in understanding why this happens and are looking at how the brain is affected after a stroke. The study will  use MRI scanners to see if people who have damage to a certain part of the brain also have specific language and memory problems.

The  research could help to find better treatments  for people who  have language and memory problems after a stroke.

Who can take part?

Any one who has had a stroke on the left side of the brain.

If you are unsure, please get in touch with the study contact and they can find out if you can take part.
