The following is a list of studies by CPSR researchers who are recruiting volunteers for their stroke studies.

Cognitive Changes and Rehabilitation in People With Transient Ischemic Attack, Stroke, or Stroke Risk Factors

Study Objective: Through this study, we hope to 1) improve assessment of iWMD injury effects through behavioral assessment and multimodal brain imaging and 2) apply rehabilitation specifically for complex information processing deficits in small vessel white matter stroke.

Finger Robot Study

Study Objective: To learn how to improve our assistive device to make it useful and easy to use during therapy and daily life.

The relationship of rhythm abilities and gait after stroke

Study Objective: To describe the relationship between rhythm abilities and the ability to walk with a regular pattern, and also to self‐evaluate the walking pattern after stroke. The other aim of this study is to describe brain activity when performing rhythm tests.

Adaptive clothing for persons living with hemiparesis

Study Objective: To use a Participatory Design research methodology to engage working age women with chronic hemiparesis to create and evaluate clothing designs for outerwear, innerwear and brassieres.

Therapeutic Instrumental Music Performance with Sensory-Enhanced Motor Imagery in Chronic Post-Stroke Rehabilitation

Study Objective: To investigate the effects of therapeutic instrumental music performance (TIMP) and sensory-enhanced motor imagery (SEMI) on upper limb movement, affect and cognition following a stroke.

Brain Stimulation and Tailored Interventions to Promote Recovery in Stroke Survivors

Study Objective: To determine whether tailored strength training interventions in stroke survivors, based on MEPs amplitude, can lead to greater gains in arm function and to determine whether combining anodal tDCS with tailored strength training can promote recovery in stroke survivors when compared to sham tDCS.

Computer Games for Speech Rehabilitation in Patients with Stroke

Study Objective: To investigate the effect of a novel game-based treatment approach on speech recovery post stroke.
