: I had a brain aneurysm burst in the cerebellum 8 years ago, flooding the surrounding area with blood. This has resulted in uncoordinated speech and movement and strabismus in the eyes. AApparently about 5 per cent of sdtroke victims have ataxia as a result. I gather that the current stem cell research holds promise for stroke victims...and I would like to know more about current research.

Jill, I had an AVM blow in my left hemisphere - besides that, I am a brain scientist, who would have thunk! Anyway, there is all kinds of cool research going on - check out the NIH and the NINDS official pages and follow your dreams from there! good luck to you! Jill Bolte Taylor, the Singin' Scientist
