Stroke, cerebral aneurysm and traumatic brain injury can lead to devastating loss of physical and cognitive abilities. Brain Repair Centre-affiliated researchers are pursuing new ways to minimize the extent of brain damage and help people regain lost abilities as they recover from such injuries. They have a particular emphasis on stroke because it is so common—in Canada, a stroke occurs every ten minutes, according to the Canadian Stroke Network.
