PET Imaging of Neuroinflammation in Neurodegenerative Diseases Via a Novel TSPO Radioligand

Objectives The primary objective is to explore if human subjects with neurodegenerative diseases exhibit different level of neuroinflammation, as measured by brain uptake of a 3rd generation [11C]ER176 TSPO ligand, compared to control subjects. The secondary objectives are to determine, 1) if [11C]ER176 TSPO brain uptake shows disease-specific patterns across ...


Investigation on the Cortical Communication (CortiCom) System

The successful adoption of brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) as assistive technologies (ATs) for disabled populations depends on the ability to elicit rapid, intuitive, and reliable control signals. To date, it is not known which sources of neural information provide the most natural and efficient means of control. This study will directly ...

Phase N/A

Connectomics in Psychiatric Classification

This study extends the assessment of brain connectivity and function, being conducted in the Human Connectome Project (HCP), to psychiatrically ill populations. The HCP consortium has made significant improvements in MRI instrumentation, data acquisition, preprocessing, and analysis. These improvements are currently providing publicly available data on the structure, function, and ...

Phase N/A

A Study to Evaluate the Safety Tolerability Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of BIIB100 Administered Orally to Adults With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability of single-ascending doses of BIIB100 in adults with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The secondary objective of the study is to characterize the pharmacokinetic profile of BIIB100.


Study on Predictiors and Mechanism of Conversion to Psychosis in Individuals at Ultra-high Risk Group

Considering the complex pathological mechanism and the poor treatment outcomes of schizophrenia, early detection and intervention gradually become the key work for the foundational and clinical research in schizophrenia. Ultra-high risk for psychosis (UHP) is defined as individuals at the prodromal stage of schizophrenia. Early intervention in individual at UHP ...

Phase N/A

Physical Exercise for Prevention of Dementia

Community-dwelling volunteers, recruited from social centers, were invited to an in-person assessment that included a medical history questionnaire and examination, anthropometric measurements, blood tests for cardiovascular risk, and several outcome measures. Participants meeting the inclusion criteria were divided in 3 groups (participants without subjective or objective cognitive impairment, with subjective ...

Phase N/A

5-Cog Battery for Detecting Cognitive Impairment and Dementia

Despite the availability of numerous cognitive assessment tools, cognitive impairment related to dementia is frequently under-diagnosed in primary care settings, and is a more prevalent problem among older African-Americans and Hispanics than among older whites. Missed detection delays treatment of reversible conditions as well as provision of support services and ...

Phase N/A

The Interaction Between Diabetes and Estradiol on Human Brain Metabolism in Postmenopausal Women

Epidemiological studies suggest there may be an interaction between type 2 diabetes and estrogen in postmenopausal women, such that diabetes may interact with estrogen levels over time to increase risk for dementia. The mechanism for this effect is now known. However, animal research suggests that it may occur through estrogen's ...


Longitudinal Changes of [18F]PI-2620 Positron Emission Tomography in Subjects With Cognitively Normal Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer's Disease

The overall goal of this imaging trial is to evaluate crosssectional difference and longitudinal changes of [18F]PI-2620, a tau targeted positron emission computed tomography radioligand, in cognitively normal individuals, and subjects with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's disease.


Acute Intermittent Hypoxia and Breathing in Neuromuscular Disease

Most ALS patients survive less than 5 years after diagnosis, and the main cause of death is respiratory failure. The investigators are interested in the therapeutic potential of acute intermittent hypoxia (AIH) for individuals with neuromuscular diseases, such as ALS. More than two decades of research indicates AIH elicits meaningful ...
