Metacognitive Training to Enhance Strategy Use in Blast-Related TBI

OBJECTIVES: Aim 1: is to test benefits of GMT for improving executive function. Aim 2: Investigate factors which affect response to treatment. RESEARCH PLAN: This is a randomized controlled study to investigate the effect of Goal Management Training (GMT) for those with blast-related mTBI. The control group will participate in ...

Phase N/A

Improving Psychological Wellness After Acquired Brain Injury

Each year, approximately 50,000 Canadians sustain an acquired brain injury (ABI) with 16,000 of those individuals living in Ontario. Individuals with ABI not only suffer significant cognitive and motor impairments, but they often experience debilitating emotional distress. Emotional distress uniquely contributes to poorer functional outcomes and decreased quality of life. ...

BrainGate2: Feasibility Study of an Intracortical Neural Interface System for Persons With Tetraplegia

The goal of the BrainGate2 research and development project is to identify the core methods and features for a medical device that could allow people with paralysis to recover a host of abilities that normally rely on the hands.

Growth Hormone and Insulin Growth Factor 1 Deficiencies in Children/Adolescents Following Traumatic Brain Injury: The Impact on Growth and Neuropsychological Development

The purpose of this study is to look at the relationship between growth hormones, and recovery from a TBI - traumatic brain injury. It is believed that a TBI may interfere with the body's ability to produce growth hormones. These hormones may be needed by the body for growth, mental ...

Phase

rTMS to Improve Cognitive Function in TBI

The goal of the present study is to evaluate the efficacy and durability of benefits of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) as a promising non-invasive therapeutic treatment for executive function deficits reported in Veterans with mild to moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) patients. Although much progress has been made towards ...

Brain Computer Interface: Neuroprosthetic Control of a Motorized Exoskeleton

Injuries to the cervical spine and to its contents, the spinal cord, cause serious neurological deficits, with loss of motor function and sensitivity of the four limbs, resulting in quadriplegia. The level of the lesion separating the area without deficits, above the lesion, from the sub-lesional area depends on the ...

Phase N/A

Neuroprotective Effect of Autologous Cord Blood Combined With Therapeutic Hypothermia Following Neonatal Encephalopathy

The primary aim of this study is to determine the neuroprotective effect of intravenous administration of autologous cord blood in neonates with severe encephalopathy (hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy or cerebral infarction). It is hypothesized that the administration of autologous cord blood will be safe and well tolerated in neonates with severe ...

Phase

Preemie Hypothermia for Neonatal Encephalopathy

Most clinical studies of neonatal encephalopathy (NE) and potential interventions have focused on infants ≥36 weeks GA. Although many interventions have been suggested and assessed for prevention or palliation of NE, the only one currently supported by rigorous clinical evidence to improve outcome in human newborns has been hypothermia implemented ...

Phase

Virtual Reality (VR) Treatment for Balance Problems in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectivenes of a home-based physical therapy program designed to improve balance following traumatic brain injury by incorporating the use of a virtual reality system.

Phase N/A

The Impact of Ketamine on Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction Delirium and Renal Dysfunction

Ketamine is a commonly used anesthetic medication which is used for induction of anesthesia as well as as an analgesic. It has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties which may decrease post-operative complications following cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass that are thought to associated with inflammation. Some studies have shown ...
