2   Link   BrainInfo
BrainInfo is a website that helps one identify structures in the brain and provides many different kinds of information about each structure. It consists of three basic knowledge bases: NeuroNames, which provides the index to brain structures and narrative information about them; the Template Atlas, which shows the structures that are found in the primate brain; and NeuroMaps, a set of several hundred overlays that will show the location of different kinds of information that have been mapped to the standard background maps (templates) of the Atlas. Information about brain structures in other species, particularly the human, is provided by links to other websites.
3   Link   Canadian Stroke Consortium
Created, owned and operated by its members, the Canadian Stroke Consortium (CSC) is the nation's premiere neurologist network. We are an academic alliance committed to the pursuit of anti-stroke therapies by designing and/or conducting research projects and clinical trials. Many of our members are opinion leaders in Canadian and international stroke research and clinical practice. Together with the pharmaceutical industry, our combined efforts continue to support emerging trends in CNS therapeutic development.
4   Link   ClinicalTrials.gov
ClinicalTrials.gov offers up-to-date information for locating federally and privately supported clinical trials for a wide range of diseases and conditions. A clinical trial (also clinical research) is a research study in human volunteers to answer specific health questions. Interventional trials determine whether experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies are safe and effective under controlled environments. Observational trials address health issues in large groups of people or populations in natural settings.

ClinicalTrials.gov currently contains 65,949 trials sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, other federal agencies, and private industry. Studies listed in the database are conducted in all 50 States and in 161 countries ClinicalTrials.gov receives over 40 million page views per month 50,000 visitors daily.
5   Link   Cochrane Stroke Group
The Cochrane Stroke Group has been a part of The Cochrane Collaboration since August 1993. The Cochrane Collaboration is an international organisation that aims to help people make well-informed decisions about healthcare by 'preparing, maintaining, and promoting the accessibility of systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare interventions'.

Cochrane systematic reviews bring together all the available evidence relating to a clearly formulated healthcare question for evaluation and synthesis, using predetermined criteria and explicit methods designed to limit bias.

The Cochrane Stroke Group's Editorial Office is based in the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, UK, and has been funded by the Chief Scientist Office (part of the Scottish Executive Health Department) since January 1994.
6   Link   Decision Making in Acute Stroke Therapy
The University of Cincinnati Department of Emergency Medicine has enjoyed a reputation of excellence in the field for over 30 years. Nationally recognized faculty are leaders in clinical teaching and research. As the first Emergency Medicine Resident Training Program established in 1970, it attracts the country
7   Link   National Stroke Foundation
The National Stroke Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that works with the public, government, health professionals, patients, carers and stroke survivors to reduce the impact of stroke on the Australian community.

Our challenge is to save 110,000 Australians from death and disability due to stroke over 10 years.

We will achieve this by:

* Educating the public about the risk factors and signs of stroke and promoting healthy lifestyles.
* Working with all stakeholders to develop and implement policy on the prevention and management of stroke.
* Encouraging the development of comprehensive and coordinated services for all stroke survivors and their families.
* Encouraging and facilitating stroke research.
8   Link   National Stroke Research Institute
The NSRI is located at the Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital in Melbourne Australia and is directed by Professor Geoffrey Donnan. The NSRI has played a key role in national and international trials of treatment for stroke which have greatly improved services and knowledge about stroke prevention and treatment.
9   Link   Stroke Society of Australasia
The Stroke Society of Australasia was formed in 1989 by clinicians and researchers endeavouring to tackle the enormous burden of stroke in our community. The number of members has steadily increased to more than 300.

A scientific meeting is held each year, the program comprising keynote lectures by local or international experts and free communications. The New Investigators Award is presented for the most outstanding research paper delivered at each meeting.

In 1997, an off-shore meeting was held in Singapore, to develop links with our South East Asia colleagues. The same year, the Stroke Society of Australasia worked with the National Stroke Foundation to co-sponsor the World Health Organisation Asia-Pacific Consensus Forum on Stroke Management.

In the year 2000, the SSA hosted the International Stroke Society's Fourth World Stroke Congress in Melbourne, giving the SSA an international profile.

The SSA formed the Australasian Stroke Trial Network to facilitate participation of stroke units around Australasia in national and international multicentre therapeutic trials. The Australian Streptokinase Trial is regarded internationally as one of the key contributions towards successful thrombolytic therapy in acute stroke.

The Stroke Society of Australasia has representation on Federal and State committees which formulate government policy on stroke. It also has strong ties with the National Stroke Foundation, as the two organisations share the common objective of overcoming the problem of stroke.
10   Link   The Internet Stroke Center
The Internet Stroke Center is a non-profit, educational service of the Stroke Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University Medical Center and the Cerebrovascular Diseases Section of the Department of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

The Internet Stroke Center exists to advance understanding of stroke research and clinical care. Our goal is to provide current, professional, un-biased information about stroke. The information on this site is obtained from published accounts, meeting presentations, internet searches, and direct correspondence.

We always welcome contributions from others at Washington University and elsewhere. If you have information about a stroke center, web site, clinical trial, symposium, or postdoctoral fellowship opportunity please let us know about it. However, our site does not host or receive funding from advertising or from the display of commercial content.
