Thanks Dean I will have a look. You are quite right about getting things done yourself. I dont fault hospital care so much when one is in hospital after a stroke but of course it is patchy. It's the after care that is the problem. I have made a reasonably good recovery but mainly through my own endeavour by reading about 'stroke' and 'the brain'. You are the same Dean what I have read of your postings. I find the medical people dont really know much about stroke; I spoke to a doctor about plasticity and the brain' he had never heard of it! Looks like we have to do it ourselves as you say Dean. Peter O

either google dean's stroke musings or figure out what oc1dean blogspot com address is. I'm on a roll, I figure my goal is to change stroke rehabilitation worldwide. I'm arrogant enough to think it may be possible. If you want something done in the stroke world give it to a survivor they are the only ones with the passion to get it done. I encourage everyone to start their own blog. If we are lucky maybe we can have hundreds listed on Peter Levines blog. http://www.recoverfromstroke.blogspot.com/
Keep up the good work Peter.
Sorry about the double postings, didn't realize I wasn't logged in.

If your Drs. and therapists are not talking to you constantly on these subjects then you need to start reading up on these yourself.
Research over the last decade has produced growing evidence that the adult human brain creates new neurons, a process known as neurogenesis.
Just finding out about this gives me something positive to think about again - similar to when I first found out about neuroplasticity.

This book although it looks like a book on teaching kids actually has a lot of information applicable to survivors.
