    Recovery After Stroke - The Neuroscience Dilemma


    Associate Professor Cathy Stinear's HARTS study is targeting answers to two compelling questions about stroke recovery: What happens to people longer term after stroke?

    Dr Stinear is a clinical neuroscientist based at Auckland City Hospital within the Neurological Foundation Chair of Clinical Neurology group, which is headed by Professor Alan Barber.

    “A Brief Look at the Stroke Foundation of New Zealand” is a review

This is intended to convey a brief look back into past events as they unfolded, a passing look at who did what; along with some interesting anecdotes intended to provide a greater insight, which may be used as a reference in understanding when, how, and by whom, this all came about. This is not intended to be a local history of any of the Regions, as that would become another mission, although references are made to them as they became established with some brief comments as they later developed. Likewise the early establishment of some clubs is recorded to help understand the pattern of club development.
