Dr. Hakim’s research interests include cerebral vulnerability and protection in stroke and other conditions, and investigating the means of enhancing post-stroke plasticity. Forty years of research into the brain and its functions has given Dr. Hakim much insight into the illness known as dementia. Along with increasing awareness of dementia among the general public is a growing interest in its prevention. Dr. Hakim’s work with stroke patients has led him to explore dementia, a major consequence of stroke, and write about means of reducing it.
