Over 60 participants needed for study of cerebral blood supply.
Subjects are needed to participate in a PhD research project as a volunteer (control subject), in parallel to a study which is currently ongoing in the patients who have had a recent stroke.
The University Of Leicester Department Of Cardiovascular Sciences is undertaking a study to look at the brain’s ability to regulate its blood supply as we get older.
The study involves an ultrasound examination of the arteries in the brain, a measure of your blood pressure, breathing rate and a heart trace recording (ECG). During the recording you will be asked to move your elbow.
Recordings take around an hour, and are performed at Leicester Royal Infirmary.
