Committed Actions for Successful Aging

The CASA model is developed here in the investigators program (Geda et al) based on neuroscience and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). The rationale for the study is that the cortico-cortical network linking the prefrontal cortex with the mesial temporal lobe is susceptible to the wear and tear of day ...

Phase N/A

A 14 Week Study of Mindfulness Effects on Attentional Control in Older Adults

This will be a 14-week research study exploring week to week changes in attentional control and selected time-varying covariates. The study will involve comparison of two groups of adults aged 65 and older. Half the participants (n=20) will be randomized to received eight weeks of mindfulness-inspired training, while the other ...

Phase N/A

Augmenting Cognitive Training In Older Adults

A two-phase adaptive randomized clinical trial will examine the individual and combined impact of pairing cognitive training with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). tDCS is a method of non-invasive brain stimulation that directly stimulates brain regions involved in active cognitive function and could enhance neural plasticity when paired with a ...

Phase N/A

Aging Program Project Grant 6

This study aims to enhance circadian signals to improve cardiometabolic functions in older adults though meal timing interventions and melatonin supplements. Cardiometabolic disease (CMD) is prevalent among older adults, but despite vigorous research to prevent it, it remains on of the greatest public health challenges. Previous research has shown that ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Aging on Bariatric Surgery-induced Changes in Metabolism and Cognition

With an aging population that is increasingly susceptible to obesity and obesity-related comorbidities including sarcopenia and diabetes, effective and safe treatment options tailored to the needs of older adults are imperative. While medication and lifestyle interventions generally fail to achieve sustained large-scale weight loss, bariatric surgery is the most effective ...

Phase N/A

Neuroplasticity in Auditory Aging_Project 2

The detrimental effects of aging on auditory temporal processing have been well documented in humans and animal models. At present, there are gaps in knowledge of the extent to which these auditory temporal processing deficits can be mitigated in older adults with or without hearing loss through auditory training and ...

Phase N/A

Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training to Improve Blood Pressure and Physiological Function

Over, the proposed research project has the long-term potential to influence clinical practice by establishing a novel lifestyle intervention for treating multiple domains of ageand hypertension-associated physiological dysfunction and thereby reducing the risk of clinical disease and disability.

Phase N/A

Prevention of Cardiovascular Stiffening With Aging and Hypertensive Heart Disease

The global objective of this project is to test novel strategies to prevent diastolic dysfunction associated with HFpEF; these include: a) identifying high risk individuals by using population derived imaging and blood biomarkers; and b) implementing novel exercise training strategies in these middle age individuals, when cardiac plasticity still exists, ...

Phase N/A

Multisensory Perceptual Training in the Elderly

The investigators will examine the training effects in the elderly by comparing the behavioral and EEG measures before and after training. The investigators will include 20 young participants and use their baseline as target performance for training in the elderly. 40 elderly participants will be randomly assigned to one of ...

Phase N/A

Auditory Temporal Processes in Aging

This research program in speech perception and auditory psychophysics examines the hypothesis that many of the predominant difficulties in speech understanding of elderly listeners are related to underlying problems in auditory temporal processing. One form of degraded speech that is particularly difficult for elderly listeners to perceive is accented English. ...
