Chromatic Pupillometry to Assess the Melanopsin-Light Pathway in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

In 1963, Richardson, Steele and Olszewski published a landmark clinical report on 8 cases of supranuclear ophthalmoplegia, pseudobulbar palsy, nuchal dystonia and dementia and established the syndrome of heterogeneous system degeneration as a clinicopathological entity now known as PSP. The disease has a characteristic onset in the sixth decade (range ...

Phase N/A

A Study of Brain Aging in Vietnam War Veterans

The overall long-term goal of this project is to prevent AD, which affects almost 50% of the US population over 85 years of age, and is the most common cause of dementia. Clinical signs and symptoms of AD include cognitive impairments, especially memory and emotional disturbances. In order to accomplish ...

Phase N/A

Alzheimer's Disease Core Center

All participants are seen annually. In addition to a detailed neurological examination, participants will receive a standardized battery of neuropsychological tests and will undergo genetic testing. The investigators will provide standardized periodic longitudinal assessment of the research participants. Autopsies to establish neurohistopathological diagnoses in clinically well-characterized patients with dementia, patients ...

Phase N/A

Alzheimer's Disease Genetics Study

The purpose of the Alzheimer's Disease Genetics Study is to help identify the genes that may be responsible for causing Alzheimer's Disease (AD) by collecting genetic material from families with multiple members diagnosed with AD. Qualifying families will have two living blood-related individuals who have been diagnosed with or are ...

Phase N/A

Behavioral and Environmental Sensing and Intervention

The dementia syndrome of Alzheimer's disease and other disorders is rapidly expanding due to the aging of society and the longevity of citizens. In its varying stages, care of the dementia syndrome requires differing sets of skills from the caregivers, and more skilled intervention is required as the disease progresses. ...

Research on the Early and Prognosis Diagnosis of Vascular Dementia

Around 10% of stroke survivors develop dementia within 3 months after stroke and over 20% more stroke patients have dementia in the subsequent 3 years. Previous studies documented a close relationship between stroke and Alzheimer's disease (AD). There are, however, no reliable biomarkers to detect cognitive dysfunction and dementia among ...

Phase N/A

Identification of Proteostasis-related Biomarkers in Alzheimer s Dementia

Within the last years, protein analyses of A-species in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and amyloid-imaging using F18-based PET-tracers have become a part of the diagnostic repertoire in specialized memory clinics allowing a neurobiological, biomarker-based validation of Alzheimers disease (AD) diagnosis. This has led to a substantial increase in the specificity ...

Phase N/A

Reference Database & Longitudinal Registry of the Normal and Pathological Aging Brain

Currently, there is no reliable, bedside, and non-invasive method for assessing connectivity changes in electrophysiological activity of the brain associated with brain-related pathologies, e.g., concussion, ADHD, autistic spectrum disorders (ASD), etc. Event Related Potentials (ERPs), which are temporal reflections of the neural mass electrical activity of cells in specific regions ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation and Characterization of Behavioural Disorders and Dementias by the Behavioural Dysexecutive Syndrome Inventory (BDSI)

Behavioural disorders are very common right from the initial stage of dementia and contribute to loss of autonomy. Behavioural dysexecutive disorders have a particular status due to their prevalence and their diagnostic importance, as they often constitute the initial symptoms of Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD), Semantic Dementia (SD) and Huntington's disease ...

Phase N/A

Pre-Clinical (Alzheimers) Diagnosis PCD = Optimum Outcomes OO

Prospective observational study participants age 50-75 years are identified who are currently (<1 month) taking or will soon (within 3 months) start taking study medications of interest thru their own physician. Prospective observational study participants are explained how persons can be cognitively normal but at high risk for developing clinical ...
