Abstract

Stroke represents a major public health problem in the China and worldwide, but relatively little work has been directed toward identifying and treating the common neuropsychiatric disorders occurring after stroke. I will review the epidemiology, clinical and pathological correlates and treatment of depression after stroke. These disorders have been shown to inhibit physical recovery from stroke and reduced the quality of life. There are very few controlled trials examining the effectiveness of treatments for these disorders after stroke. Both pharmacological and psychological treatments, however, can alleviate symptoms of this disorder.
