If you have suffered a stroke or brain injury, you may have lost the ability to:

Regaining function

Functions depend on dedicated neural networks in the brain.

When a network is broken by stroke or damage, the function is damaged too

The function can be retrieved by repairing the broken neural network


using non-invasive

brain stimulation and training

that targets the function lost or


Behavioural control

Behavioural control is the ability to make intentional, planned, and rational behavioural choices.


If you have poor behavioural control, you may struggle with: 

Gaining control

Behavioural tendencies are stored in

neural networks in the brain.

Repeating a behaviour reinforces

the neural network.

Behaviour then becomes automatic

and difficult to control.

Behavioural control allows people to take back

control, get well and stay well.
