Although post-stroke cognitive deficit can significantly limit patient independence and social re-integration, clinical routine predictors for this condition are lacking. 'Cognitive reserve' limits the detrimental effects of slowly developing neurodegeneration. We aimed to determine whether comparable effects also exist in acute stroke. Using 'years of education' as a proxy, we investigated whether cognitive reserve beneficially influences cognitive performance and disability after stroke, whilst controlling for age and lesion size as measure of stroke pathology.

The capacity to mitigate dementia symptomology despite the prevailing brain pathology has been attributed to cognitive reserve.
Cognitive reserve is inherently a dynamic construct; however, traditional methods of estimating reserve have focused on static proxy variables. A recently proposed psychometric approach entails modeli...
Stroke is a common cause of long-term disability worldwide, and an increasing number of persons affected by stroke are of working age. In addition to physical impairments, a majority of patients repor...
Depression and cognitive impairment are common conditions following stroke. We aimed to evaluate stroke laterality as predictor of post-stroke depression (PSD) and cognitive impairment (PCI) in a stro...
Cognitive impairment affects up to 80 percent of the stroke population, however, both the available evidence about post-stroke cognition and the measures used to evaluate it longitudinally have not be...
The primary aim of this protocol is to investigate a possible new, neuroprotective treatment to prevent cognitive deficits that occur after carotid endarterectomy. We will investigate whet...
This registration enrolled patients with acute ischemic stroke within 72 hours after stroke ictus. Patients was identified as first-ever stroke based on past medical histrory. Admission CT...
There are almost 700,000 Gulf War Veterans (GWV) with 25-30% suffering from a devastating multi-symptom illness coined Gulf War Illness (GWI). GWV with GWI report significant activity limi...
One-third to one-half of acute strokes result in newly acquired cognitive impairments. Approximately 30 to 40% of people in the acute phase of stroke also sustain communication impairments...
Cognitive and emotional symptoms are often seen in the acute phase of a stroke. The prevalence of such symptoms later and the mechanisms explaining the symptoms are not fully known. The ca...
A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.
Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.
Capacity that enables an individual to cope with and/or recover from the impact of a neural injury or a psychotic episode.
An ergot derivative that has been used as a cerebral vasodilator and in peripheral vascular disease. It has been suggested to ameliorate cognitive deficits in cerebrovascular disease.
Drugs used to specifically facilitate learning or memory, particularly to prevent the cognitive deficits associated with dementias. These drugs act by a variety of mechanisms. While no potent nootropic drugs have yet been accepted for general use, several are being actively investigated.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
