Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK), the UK’s leading dementia research charity, has awarded almost £250,000 to Dr Yvonne Couch, for a new study at the University of Oxford. The study will see Dr Couch investigate how strokes can cause a type of dementia called vascular dementia.

By increasing our understanding of how the brain and blood vessels communicate after a stroke, Dr Couch hopes that she may find new clues as to how we can reduce the risk of dementia.
