Hearing Preservation and Electro-acoustic Stimulation With EVO Electrode Lead and Zebra Sound Processor

Some candidates to cochlear implantation can have residual low frequencies hearing. The EVO electrode lead has been specifically designed to preserve this residual hearing through surgery. It is then possible to provide the patient with a electro-acoustic stimulation (EAS) which combines both an acoustical stimulation for the preserved low frequency ...

Phase N/A

tDCS and Speech Therapy to Improve Aphasia

Approximately 25% of all patients after stroke suffer from aphasia. The aphasia could be so severe, that the patient cannot produce any words at all, and so the communication ability is rather poor. In that case speech therapy is the most common therapy, but the functional outcome for the patient ...

Phase N/A

Implantation of the HiRes90K Advantage Cochlear Implant With HiFocus Mid-Scala and Development of a Combined Electric and Acoustic Stimulation Technology in Adults With Partial Deafness

The purpose of this feasibility study is to evaluate whether low-frequency acoustic hearing sensitivity can be preserved in newly implanted adults with partial deafness (considerable low frequency acoustic hearing profiles with severe-to-profound high frequency sensorineural hearing loss) using the HiResolution 90K Advantage cochlear implant with the HiFocus Mid-Scala electrode to ...

Phase N/A

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.

Phase

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: ...

Phase

Interest of Combining Speech Therapy With a Non-invasive Brain Stimulation (tDCS) for the Aphasic Patient

This is a multicenter, cross-over, randomized, controlled and double blind study. 24 patients will be included between November 2015 and November 2017. During each session of speech and language treatment, aphasics will receive a weak 2 milli amperes (electric) current delivered by a tDCs device for 20 minutes. The stimulation ...

Phase N/A

Auditory Stimulation of Slow Wave Sleep and Memory in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Older Adults

Alzheimer's disease is a degenerative disorder associated with aging and presents a significant human and financial burden. Amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) is a disorder of impaired memory and is a precursor to Alzheimer's disease. Current treatments are symptomatic and do not slow disease progression. There is increasing evidence linking ...

Phase N/A

Transcranial Direct Stimulation (tDCS) and Behavioral Intervention in Aphasia

Specific Aims Aim 1: Identify and quantify the effects of a-tDCS to the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in conjunction with intensive behavioral treatment on naming in non-fluent aphasia. a-tDCS (2mA for 20 minutes) will be applied over the left DLPFC with cathode over the right orbit. Pre and post ...

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 ...
