Website Feature: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is a good site for obtaining basic information on anything related to stroke and brain trauma. They offer summary pages on many neurological disorders, organized A-Z, which provide general information detailing the cause, treatment, prognosis, and research of each topic.
NINDS is also one of the groups behind the Know Stroke website, another good place for basic information about stroke, where you can find materials and information on preventing, identifying, and treating stroke.
From the NINDS home page you can also find clinical trial opportunities for patients of neurological disorders (like stroke and aphasia). Just scroll down to the bottom of the home page, and select a disorder from the drop-down menu in the Clinical Trials box. You may be able to participate in a research study!
Every Tuesday we will be featuring some helpful online resources for stroke survivors and caregivers. An updated list of these websites can be found on our resources page. If you have any resources you’d like to share, send us an email at strokexyz (at) gmail (dot) com or via our contact form and let us know so that we can add it to the list!October 23, 2012
