Stroke scientist Associate Professor Cathy Stinear, of the School of Medicine and Centre for Brain Research, featured prominently on TV One’s ‘Sunday’ programme which aired on the 20th July.

The programme followed a stroke survivor who worked daily with Mike Ansari, a personal trainer with no formal rehabilitation education, sixteen years after a stroke left her with significant impairment on the left side of her body.  Dr Stinear spoke with presenter Peter Williams about the brain’s plasticity, and the boost which imagination, motivation, and confidence building can give to physical rehabilitation efforts.

The segment is available to view on TV One’s website.
