NIH is seeking persons with stroke for participation in several research studies. The goals of these studies include exploring ways to improve movement ability in partially paralyzed limbs and to improve the sense of touch.
Eligible persons must be 18 years of age or older, and have had a single stroke on only one side of the brain at least 3 months before enrollment. Persons who have had multiple strokes, are pregnant, or have a serious medical or neurological illness other than stroke, may not be eligible.
All studies will be conducted at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD. The duration of the studies, and the number of visits and tests, vary by study. There are no costs for study-related tests. Compensation for time and inconvenience for most studies will be provided and transportation assistance may be available.
