According to the National Institutes of Heatlh, clinical research is a study of human volunteers to answer specific questions about health. Our clinical research studies changes in brain systems after stroke. Carefully conducted clinical research is the fastest and safest way to find out what is happening in the brain when people experience hidden disabilities that affect body and personal space, communication, memory, and other functions. Interventional trials determine what experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies are actually doing in the brain, how feasible, safe and effective they may be under controlled conditions, and how individual recovery and group recovery may be different from each other. Observational research examines brain systems and networks in detail, and assesses disability and recovery over groups of people.
