Cognitive problems occur frequently after stroke and they are associated with poor outcome for patients. Despite this, cognitive impairments are not systematically measured and when they are, the tests are not necessarily suitable for stroke patients. In this talk, Humphreys will report on results from a large-scale trial of 1000 stroke patients using a new cognitive screen specially designed to be both sensitive and maximally inclusive for patients. Going beyond this, he will show how the cognitive profile generated by the new screen is useful for predicting outcome and for making links between the cognitive problems suffered by individuals and the underlying brain lesions, as it enables analyses to de-confound co-occurring factors that may contribute to poor performance in patients. The work provides a bridge between both clinically-applicable translational research and basic science.
