Investigation of Non-Invasive Outcomes Predictors in Patients Undergoing DBS for Movement Disorders

The purpose of the study is to determine if non-invasive measurements of brain waves from the skin called electroencephalography (EEG) can predict whether the brain stimulator will help your symptoms. Our goal is to obtain these brain wave measurements with patients both awake and under general anesthesia, and then to ...

Phase N/A

Post-marketing Surveillance of Administration of Botulinum Toxin Type B(NerBloc)-Investigation of the Clinical Condition in Patients With Change From Botulinum Toxin Type A

Investigation of the clinical condition in patients with cervical dystonia by Toronto Western Spasmodic Torticollis Scale (TWSTRS)

Phase N/A

Registry of Deep Brain Stimulation With the VERCISE System for Treatment of Dystonia: Vercise DBS Dystonia Registry

To compile characteristics of real-world outcomes of Boston Scientific Corporation's commercially approved VerciseTM Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Systems for the treatment of dystonia. Subjects' improvement in disease symptoms and overall Quality of life will be assessed.

Phase N/A

Investigation of Neurofeedback With Real-Time fMRI in Healthy Volunteers and Patients With Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders

Objective: The objective of this study is to see if healthy volunteers and patients with hyperkinetic movement disorders such as Tic Disorders (TD) including Tourette Syndrome (TS) are able to learn how to alter their brain activity using feedback during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and whether such feedback training ...

Phase N/A

Human Movement Database

The purpose of this study is to develop a database of normative and adaptive control strategies for human motion. Up to 900 volunteers will serve as subjects after they complete a neuromusculoskeletal screening exam. Subjects will be asked to perform one or more tasks related to the execution of activities ...

Phase N/A

Phenotype/Genotype Correlations in Movement Disorders

Objective: The goal of this protocol is to identify families with inherited movement disorders and evaluate disease manifestations to establish an accurate clinical diagnosis, and to investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms. Studies of inherited movement disorders in large families with good genealogical records are especially valuable. Additionally, the plan is ...

Phase N/A

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Focal Hand Dystonia

Objectives: The purpose of this protocol is to improve understanding of the pathophysiology of dystonia by performing an electrophysiological study using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The study may reveal new information about the role of gamma frequency oscillations in cortical facilitation in dystonia patients versus healthy volunteer subjects. The findings ...

Phase N/A

Physiological Brain Atlas Development

Purpose: To create a brain atlas that will allow physiological and clinical information to be assigned to anatomical locations in MRI space, utilizing non-rigid MRI normalization algorithms. These data will specifically be acquired from the population of patients undergoing stereotactic brain procedures. 2. To collate and analyze the brain data ...

Phase N/A

Studies of the Variable Phenotypic Presentations of Rapid-Onset Dystonia Parkinsonism and Other Movement Disorders

Rapid-onset dystonia-parkinsonism (RDP) is a rare, movement disorder with variable characteristics ranging from sudden onset (hours to days) of severe dystonic spasms to gradual onset of writer's cramp. RDP has elements of both dystonia and Parkinson's disease—two neurological diseases with motor and neuropsychological symptoms that hinder the quality of life. ...
