Stanford Health Care Recertified as Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center

Stanford Health Care announced that it has been recertified by The Joint Commission as an Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center, a prestigious designation reserved for institutions with specific abilities to receive and treat the most complex stroke cases. 


Stanford Neurologist changing the face of the stroke stopwatch

Treatment for stroke is determined by the stopwatch. Missing the few hours that are the window of opportunity between stroke onset and the time of diagnosis make many patients ineligible for reperfusion therapy


Image-interpretation software could open window of treatment for stroke


B Cells May Contribute to Post-Stroke Dementia Risk

Why is the risk for developing dementia doubled for as much as a decade after stroke? A new study suggests the answer may be B cells. 


The second-hardest thing

Learning to talk again following a stroke was tough, but now tech exec Sean Maloney is embarking on cross-country bicycle ride.


Brain scientists speak at Davos economic forum

Members of research teams created through the Stanford Neurosciences Institute's Big Ideas in Neuroscience initiative spoke Jan. 23 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.


Study ties immune cells to delayed onset of post-stroke dementia

Researchers say that the appearance in the brain of a type of immune cell has been implicated in delayed dementia in mice and humans who have suffered a stroke.


The Weirdness of Boxes

In this Brain Game, Jason Silva and Dr. Allison Okamura show us how conflicting information can trick our senses into believing lies.


Public policies for addiction, smarter prosthetics and stroke among the Big Ideas tackled by Stanford neuroscientists

Brain research that improves policies for treating drug addiction is one of seven Big Ideas that will become new priorities for the Stanford Neurosciences Institute. These new interdisciplinary teams span schools and disciplines to tackle critical challenges in brain research.


Big Ideas Fuel Stroke Recovery Research

With financial support from the Big Ideas in Neuroscience program, Maarten Lansberg, MD, PhD, and Marion Buckwalter, MD, PhD, have merged their basic science and clinical backgrounds, pulled in experts from across Stanford and built a collaborative network of brain power to tackle this essential question: Why do some patients recover better from stroke while others do not? The Stroke Collaborative Action Network, or SCAN, was developed to understand the mechanisms of stroke recovery and to enhance recovery through new treatments.

Rebuilding the Brain After Stroke, World Economic Forum

Dr. Buckwalter spoke about the SCAN project at the World Economic Forum in January 2015. She talked about the importance of stroke as a global health problem and the importance of collaboration between disciplines to solve the problem of how stroke recovery works, and described how SCAN scientists are working together to develop treatments for stroke survivors.
