Our Changing World - Drug for stroke recovery

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:35 pm on 8 November 2010

Stroke is the major cause of adult disability in this country, and occurs when there's a sudden interruption of blood flow to a part of the brain, often resulting in paralysed arms or legs. Currently, there's no drug available for promoting recovery after a stroke. But that may be about to change.
