Improvement of Language Disturbances After Stroke by Intensive Training and Electrical Brain Stimulation

The study aims to identify if intensive language training, consisting mainly of computer-based object naming, together with electrical brain stimulation, will lead to an improvement of language functions in patients that suffer from language disturbances after a stroke.


Bilateral Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Auditory Hallucinations

This study is an extension of an ongoing clinical trial ( identifier NCT 00308997) that was initiated in 2006. The primary objective of the ongoing clinical trial (hereafter called the "parent trial") is to determine efficacy of rTMS in curbing auditory hallucinations when delivered to a part of the left ...


Magnetic Stimulation as a Treatment for Auditory Hallucinations in Schizophrenia

We hypothesize that: True treatment with rTMS will have significant decrease in auditory hallucinations versus sham treatment over the temporoparietal cortex. FMRI will highlight areas of activation with auditory hallucinations distinct from the area identified by Hoffman's scalp based method. Cortical inhibition as measured by paired pulse TMS will be ...


Post-Stroke Aphasia and Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) Treatment Study

Aphasia after stroke is associated with high mortality, significant motor impairment, and severe limitations in social participation. During the past decade, therapies administered by stroke teams have made great strides to limit the motor impairments caused by stroke. Unfortunately, progress in aphasia rehabilitation has not experienced the same rapid advancement. ...

Phase N/A

Brain Stimulation and Aphasia Treatment

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in the United States. Approximately one-third of all strokes result in acute language impairment (aphasia), with approximately one-fifth suffering from chronic aphasia. Unfortunately, the prognosis for moderate to severe chronic aphasia remains grim, as current behavioral treatment approaches usually offer only limited-to-modest ...


Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation as Treatment for Auditory Hallucinations

Rationale: Auditory hallucinations (AH) are a symptom of several psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia. In the majority of patients, these AH respond well to antipsychotic medication. Yet, a significant minority continues to experience frequent AH despite optimal pharmacotherapy and AH severely decrease quality of life in these patients. The number ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in Post-stroke Aphasia

This study aims to determine whether behavioral word-retrieval therapy coupled with anodal tDCS will improve the fluency and name retrieval performance of participants with post-stroke aphasia more efficiently and for greater duration than language therapy alone (i.e. in the sham condition). tDCS neuronal targets will be selected in this order: ...


Treatment of Auditory Hallucinations in Schizophrenia With Bilateral Theta Burst Stimulation

Auditory verbal hallucinations (AH), a cardinal feature of schizophrenia, are often severely distressing and increase the risk for violence and suicide. Although antipsychotic medication mostly exerts rapid beneficial effects on this symptom particularly in first-episode patients who continue on taking their medication (Sommer et al. 2012), in up to 25%-30% ...

Phase N/A

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) Treatment for Schizophrenia Patients With Auditory Hallucinations

All patients underwent a medical evaluation that included physical examination and routine laboratory studies before and after repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) treatment. Patients were randomly allocated to rTMS group and the sham group. There are about 30 patients in each group. For the first 30 patients, allocation was by ...

Phase N/A

Transcranial Brain Stimulation and Its Underlying Neural Mechanisms as a Novel Treatment for Auditory Hallucinations

The majority of patients with psychosis experience hallucinations, particularly auditory hallucinations are frequent. The hallucinations often leads to massive distress and impairments in social functioning and sometimes even order patients to commit acts of violence against themselves or others. The standard treatment for auditory hallucinations is antipsychotic medication. However, sideeffects ...
