Project Details


The Recovery of peopLE with Aphasia after StrokE (RELEASE) project, funded by the National Institute of Health Research-and The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia investigated priority research questions related to stroke-related aphasia. We examined the predictors of aphasia recovery1, the association of language recovery with therapy parmaters2 and the potential optimisation of therapy for people with aphasia by age, sex, aphasia severity and time since their stroke3. Our database was developed from 174 datasets and included 5,928 individuals.
We now propose to examine further aphasia research questions, prioritised by international aphasia researchers using existing datasets. Our “big data” approach and efficient methodologies allows for individual adjustment of prognostic factors, increased statistical power, greater participant representation, examination of demographic and clinical patterns, subgroup analyses, and reduces research waste and ecological bias in a time and cost-efficient manner.
