Another great stroke congress!
Members of the lab travelled to Quebec City this past week to attend Canadian Stroke Congress. Highlights of the congress included in-depth discussion of recent clinical trials in stroke rehabilitation (the AVERT trial among others), debating the effectiveness of physical rehabilitation (of course its effective!), and emerging treatments to optimize rehabilitation including pharmacological interventions and brain stimulation.
Lab members Sarah Kraeutner and Hawazin Khan presented their work on screening for imagery ability and exercise effects on brain excitability. Overall a great congress, and wonderful to see such a strong contingent from Atlantic Canada! Next years Congress is in Calgary – looking forward to it already!
