Non-invasive Brain Stimulation for the Treatment of Depression Symptoms in ALS: A Pilot Study

The objective of this study is to evaluate the role of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for symptom reduction of depression and cognitive loss among patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and other Neurodegenerative Diseases. Behavioral symptoms in ALS have been under scrutiny since its earliest descriptions, nearly 30 years ...

Phase N/A

Enhancing Working Memory in Patients With Early Alzheimer's Disease Through the Use of rTMS

Specific aim 1: To assess working memory in participants with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and its change in response to a 4-week course of bilateral rTMS of DLPFC. Hypothesis 1a: Compared to healthy individuals, participants with AD will be impaired on the N-back task. Hypothesis 1b: Compared to sham rTMS, active ...

Natural History Study of Synucleinopathies

-synuclein is a small protein of 140 amino acids that is highly expressed in the brain. It's function remains poorly understood.10 Synucleinopathies are a group of neurodegenerative diseases associated with the abnormal accumulation of -synuclein within cytoplasmic inclusions in neurons or oligodendroglia. These -synuclein containing cytoplasmic aggregates occur throughout the ...

Phase N/A

Basic Auditory Processing and Auditory Hallucinations

Outcomes: Our main hypothesis is that Auditory Hallucinations Rating Scale (AHRS) scores are correlated with the percentage of wrong answers in a Tone-Matching Task test. The main objective is to assess this correlation. Our other objectives are to assess correlation between AHRS as well as other symptoms scales and psychoacoustic ...

Phase N/A

Cognitive-motor Rehabilitation Program Using Virtual Reality for Middle-aged Individuals at High Dementia Risk

The primary objective of this program is to apply a virtual reality (VR) cognitive-motor rehabilitation program to delay or slow cognitive decline of middle-aged adults who have a family history of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and thus are at particularly high risk of developing the disease.

Phase N/A

The National Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Registry

The purpose of this registry is to (A) better describe the incidence and prevalence of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in the United States;(B) examine appropriate factors, such as environmental and occupational, that may be associated with the disease; (C) better outline key demographic factors (such as age, race or ethnicity, ...

Phase N/A

The Relevance Between the microRNA-30e in Plasma and the Prognosis of Schizophrenia Patients

The plasma samples from 15 individuals with schizophrenia (with a diagnosis of ICD-10) and the equivalent healthy controls will be conducted with the quantification analysis of the microRNA-30e via real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction(RT-PCR). The 15 patients enrolled should be the first-episode and have not been treated, or were drug ...

Phase N/A

Molecular Neuroimaging of Neuroinflammation in Neurodegenerative Dementias

Neuroinflammation is increasingly implicated as a potential critical pathogenic mechanism in a variety of neurologic and psychiatric disorders. This study will use hybrid PET/MRI imaging to evaluate neuroinflammation and its relationship to cerebral perfusion in frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Patients with FTD will be recruited from the Cognitive Neurology and Aging ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Rett Syndrome With Triheptanoin

The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of triheptanoin in participants with Rett syndrome using laboratory values, electrocardiogram, rate of adverse events (AE), and physical exam. This study also seeks to evaluate the efficacy of UX007 (triheptanoin) in improving overall seizure frequency, dystonia severity, and ...
