Chronic Electrical Stimulation of Hypothalamus/Fornix in Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia for which no treatment has shown consistent efficacy to stop or slow down the disease. Recent report of enhancement of memory abilities by bilateral chronic deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the fornix in the hypothalamus suggests that neuromodulation of circuits ...

Cataract Removal and Alzheimer's Disease

In this project, we propose to test the following clinical hypothesis, while addressing the primary and two secondary Specific Aims: Hypothesis: Cataract removal produces measurable benefits in vision, perception, independent function, and quality of life in patients with co-morbid Alzheimer's disease. Primary Specific Aim: To determine the effects of cataract ...

Dopaminergic Enhancement of Learning and Memory in Healthy Adults and Patients With Dementia/Mild Cognitive Impairment

Prior work of our group shows that the dopamine precursor levodopa markedly improves word learning success in healthy subjects. In this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial, we probe whether administration of levodopa improves learning performance as compared to placebo administration on neuropsychological tests and in an associative learning paradigm. We postulate ...

Memantine for Agitation in Dementia

Agitation is a cause of morbidity and mortality in Alzheimer's due to distress and use of medication with side effects. Memantine has beed shown to be associated with less agitation and a recent study by forrest pharmaceuticals failed to recruit. We will perform a 12 week rct in 164 patients ...

Donepezil and Brain Activity Patterns in Those at Risk For Alzheimer's Disease

HYPOTHESIS 1. Cognitively intact individuals with normal brain morphology at genetic risk for developing Alzheimer's' Disease (AD) show alterations in brain activation patterns during tasks that require memory compared to similar individuals with lower risk for developing AD. 2. Donepezil, a cholinesterase inhibitor, can normalize such brain activation patterns in ...

An Innovative Psychosocial Intervention for Adult-Child Caregivers of Parents With Alzheimer's Disease

Caring for an elderly parent is a growing societal problem, and many studies have shown that caring for a person with dementia can have a negative impact on a caregiver's psychological and physical health, social life and career, and relationship with the patient.

Implementation Study of Dementia Guidelines in Primary Care

Background Early diagnosis of dementia benefits both patient and caregiver. Nevertheless, dementia in primary care is currently under-diagnosed in developed countries. In several countries educational interventions were developed to improve dementia diagnosis and management in primary care. Some of these interventions were successful in increasing the number of dementia diagnoses ...

A Randomized Controlled Trial on the Effect of Exercise on Physical Cognitive and Affective Function in Dementia Subjects

Studies have shown conflicting results of the effect of exercise on dementia patients. The aim of this study is to examine the role of physical activity on the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia in older persons. To promote the benefits of aerobic exercise on dementia patients and encourage exercise ...
