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: ...


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 ...


Interest of Combining Speech Therapy With a Non-invasive Brain Stimulation (tDCS) for the Aphasic Patient

This is a multicenter, cross-over, randomized, controlled and double blind study. 24 patients will be included between November 2015 and November 2017. During each session of speech and language treatment, aphasics will receive a weak 2 milli amperes (electric) current delivered by a tDCs device for 20 minutes. The stimulation ...

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

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) Treatment for Schizophrenia Patients With Auditory Hallucinations

All patients underwent a medical evaluation that included physical examination and routine laboratory studies before and after repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) treatment. Patients were randomly allocated to rTMS group and the sham group. There are about 30 patients in each group. For the first 30 patients, allocation was by ...

Phase N/A

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 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 ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Auditory Hallucinations in Schizophrenia With Bilateral Theta Burst Stimulation

Auditory verbal hallucinations (AH), a cardinal feature of schizophrenia, are often severely distressing and increase the risk for violence and suicide. Although antipsychotic medication mostly exerts rapid beneficial effects on this symptom particularly in first-episode patients who continue on taking their medication (Sommer et al. 2012), in up to 25%-30% ...
