Lifestyle Enriching Activities for Research in Neuroscience Intervention Trial: LEARNit Study

Cognitive decline in older adults is a major public health issue. The cost of caring for older adults with substantial cognitive impairment, like those with Alzheimer's Disease in the US is approximately $200 billion a year, causing major societal, economic, and caregiving burden. Despite great advances towards diagnosing these problems, ...

SArcopenia Prevalence in Frail Older Adults. SAF Study

The age-associated loss of lean mass is a defining parameter of sarcopenia and may lead to various negative health outcomes such as impairment of physical performance and disability. Furthermore sarcopenia is considered to be one of the main factors in the pathogenesis of the frailty syndrome. However, for clinical use ...

Phase N/A

Blood-Brain Barrier Disruption in People With White Matter Hyperintensities Who Have Had a Stroke

Objective: To follow a cohort of stroke patients with white matter hyperintensities (WMH), using MRI, and thereby track the natural history of changes in blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption. By establishing a better understanding of the relationship between the presence of BBB disruption and WMH progression, we hope to identify BBB ...

Phase N/A

Influence of Brain Oscillation-Dependent TMS on Motor Function

OBJECTIVE: Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a potential adjunct therapy for post-stroke neurorehabilitation. So far, it has been customarily applied uncoupled from brain oscillatory activity (as measured using EEG waveforms), resulting in variability in the biological response to each stimulus, small effect sizes and significant inter-individual variability. Brain oscillatory activity ...

Phase N/A

Brain Enhancement Training Towards Elders Resilience to Aging

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of the experimental treatment (cognitive training) further outlined in this protocol on the cognitive abilities (e.g., processing speed, attention, working memory, and executive function), brain functionality, functional status and quality of life of individuals with age-related cognitive decline as ...

Phase N/A

Health TAPESTRY Ontario

The Health Teams Advancing Patient Experience: Strengthening Quality (Health TAPESTRY) involves recording a person's life and health goals, screening for health risks and needs, and then initiating a plan that supports achievement of those goals and address risks and needs. It includes four parts: Trained volunteers connect with clients (patients) ...

Phase N/A

ACES - ACE Inhibitors Combined With Exercise for Seniors With Hypertension

The purpose of this project is to conduct a randomized, controlled trial (RCT) to determine if choice of antihypertensive medication influences changes in functional status and other cardiovascular risk factors among older persons with hypertension. Functional status, determined by measures of physical performance, is an important predictor of cardiovascular outcomes ...

Phase

Sleep Aging and Risk for Alzheimer's 2.0

Age-related sleep changes and common sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may increase amyloid burden and represent risk factors for cognitive decline in the elderly. We will directly interrogate the brain using a 2-night nocturnal polysomnography (NPSG) and amyloid deposition using C-PiB PET/MR both at baseline and at the ...

Phase N/A

Aging and Mixed Perturbation Training to Reduce Falls in Locomotion

Impaired or delayed reactive postural responses pose a potential threat to falls while walking resulting in slips or trips in older and neurologically impaired individuals. Therefore, increase in understanding of postural responses to unexpected external perturbation in older adults and people with neurological diseases will lead to development of new ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Age and Inspiratory Resistance on the Inspiratory Gas Levels While Wearing Air Purifying Respirator "

After signing the consent form, 20 healthy young subjects and 20 healthy older subjects will go through a medical examination. Subjects will be asked for their medical history especially on respiratory and cardiac diseases. All subjects will go through a spirometry test to evaluate their respiratory function. After their medical ...
