Agency in Dystonia

This is a single-centre, two-group ( dystonia and control), case-control study using behavioural and novel multimodal neuroimaging techniques to address the study aims. The battery of the tasks will include explicit-agency tasks, a visual discrimination task on objects movement perception. The magnetic resonance acquisition protocol will include MP2RAGE structural (10 ...

Phase N/A

Physiological Brain Atlas Development

The study proposes the enrollment of candidates undergoing a deep brain stimulator (DBS) implant. Data will be collected before, during and after surgery and will be electronically entered into the Atlas database where it will be stored indefinitely. The purpose of the study is to create an Atlas to store ...

Phase N/A

Randomized Controlled Trial of Pyridoxine for Tardive Dyskinesia

Overview of Procedures: All procedures will be conducted at either the University of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel Hill, or at the North Carolina Psychiatric Research Center (NCPRC), a specialized program of the University of North Carolina Center for Excellence in Community Mental Health, in Raleigh. Screening: During the initial ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of the Efficacy of Double Monopolar Versus Interleaving Stimulation Modes for Pallidal Deep Brain Stimulation

Background For the treatment of drug-refractory dystonia, bilateral pallidal deep brain stimulation (GPi-DBS) is proven to be an efficient option. On average, 40-55% improvement on dystonia rating scales (DRS) could be achieved according to the results of multicenter trials lasting for years. However, a considerable portion (10-25%) of the patients ...


Safety and Tolerability of Perampanel in Cervical Dystonia

Idiopathic cervical dystonia (CD) is the most common form of focal dystonia with a prevalence of approximately 60 cases per million population.(Nutt et al.,1988). Current oral medical treatments for CD have variable efficacy and often with marked side effects. Botulinum toxin injections may be more effective than pharmacological therapies, and ...


Exercise Training in Dystonia

The study team plan to conduct a randomized prospective, parallel-group, controlled study to examine the effects of exercises in dystonia and other involuntary movement disorders. Patients will be randomized to receive either progressive resistance training or a control treatment following the modified fitness protocol. The study team hypothesize that progressive ...

Phase N/A

Pathophysiology of Dystonia and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Objective The current exploratory study aims at detailed evaluation of pathophysiology of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) dystonia compared to Focal Hand Dystonia (FHD) with focus on the involvement of the parietal area. Study population: The study will enroll patients with Focal Hand Dystonia (FHD), CRPS dystonia, CRPS without dystonia ...

Phase N/A

Loss of Depotentiation in Focal Dystonia

Objectives Simulation paradigms can induce plastic changes in brain excitability. Paired associative stimulation (PAS) with an interstimulus interval of 25 ms (PAS25) induces a long-term potentiation (LTP)-like effect while that at an interval of 10 ms (PAS10) induces a long-term depression (LTD)-like effect. The LTP-like effect induced by PAS25 is ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Characterization of Movement Disorders and Dementias

Objective The objective of this study is to ascertain individuals with a clinical diagnosis of a movement disorder or dementia, their affected and unaffected family members, and unrelated, healthy individuals (to provide control samples); to characterize their phenotypes; and to identify and further characterize genetic contributions to etiology by collecting ...

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 diseasetwo neurological diseases with motor and neuropsychological symptoms that hinder the quality of life. ...
