Transcranial Direct Stimulation (tDCS) and Behavioral Intervention in Aphasia

Specific Aims Aim 1: Identify and quantify the effects of a-tDCS to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in conjunction with intensive behavioral treatment on naming in non-fluent aphasia. a-tDCS (2mA for 20 minutes) will be applied over the left DLPFC with cathode over the right orbit. Pre and post ...

Phase N/A

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and Intensive Therapy in Aphasia

Intensive therapy for aphasia has been demonstrated to improve language functioning after stroke or other neurological injury. However, recovery is generally not complete and new therapies are needed to improve outcomes. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown to improve outcomes with motor therapy after stroke. This study will ...

Phase N/A

Targeting Auditory Hallucinations With Alternating Current Stimulation

The investigator's primary objective is to provide further evidence for the effectiveness of transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) to treat auditory hallucinations and to collect preliminary data on whether maintenance stimulation sessions can prolong the duration of stimulation-induced clinical benefits. The investigators will be looking into effects of tACS to ...

Phase N/A

Auditory Stimulation of Slow Wave Sleep and Memory in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Older Adults

Alzheimer's disease is a degenerative disorder associated with aging and presents a significant human and financial burden. Amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) is a disorder of impaired memory and is a precursor to Alzheimer's disease. Current treatments are symptomatic and do not slow disease progression. There is increasing evidence linking ...

Phase N/A

Brain Stimulation and Aphasia Treatment

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in the United States. Approximately one-third of all strokes result in acute language impairment (aphasia), with approximately one-fifth suffering from chronic aphasia. Unfortunately, the prognosis for moderate to severe chronic aphasia remains grim, as current behavioral treatment approaches usually offer only limited-to-modest ...

Phase

Implantation of the HiRes90K Advantage Cochlear Implant With HiFocus Mid-Scala and Development of a Combined Electric and Acoustic Stimulation Technology in Adults With Partial Deafness

The purpose of this feasibility study is to evaluate whether low-frequency acoustic hearing sensitivity can be preserved in newly implanted adults with partial deafness (considerable low frequency acoustic hearing profiles with severe-to-profound high frequency sensorineural hearing loss) using the HiResolution 90K Advantage cochlear implant with the HiFocus Mid-Scala electrode to ...

Phase N/A

Hearing Preservation and Electro-acoustic Stimulation With EVO Electrode Lead and Zebra Sound Processor

Some candidates to cochlear implantation can have residual low frequencies hearing. The EVO electrode lead has been specifically designed to preserve this residual hearing through surgery. It is then possible to provide the patient with a electro-acoustic stimulation (EAS) which combines both an acoustical stimulation for the preserved low frequency ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Post-stroke Aphasia

This study aims to determine whether behavioral word-retrieval therapy coupled with anodal tDCS will improve the fluency and name retrieval performance of participants with post-stroke aphasia more efficiently and for greater duration than language therapy alone (i.e. in the sham condition). tDCS neuronal targets will be selected in this order: ...

Phase

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation as Treatment for Auditory Hallucinations

Rationale: Auditory hallucinations (AH) are a symptom of several psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia. In the majority of patients, these AH respond well to antipsychotic medication. Yet, a significant minority continues to experience frequent AH despite optimal pharmacotherapy and AH severely decrease quality of life in these patients. The number ...

Phase N/A

Transcranial Brain Stimulation and Its Underlying Neural Mechanisms as a Novel Treatment for Auditory Hallucinations

The majority of patients with psychosis experience hallucinations, particularly auditory hallucinations are frequent. The hallucinations often leads to massive distress and impairments in social functioning and sometimes even order patients to commit acts of violence against themselves or others. The standard treatment for auditory hallucinations is antipsychotic medication. However, sideeffects ...
