Donepezil Double Blind Trial for ECT Memory Disfunction

This is a double blind randomized investigation of donepezil for patients suffering from schizophrenia, undergoing ECT. Patients will be randomized to receive either donezepil or plasebo, in order to gauge whether donezepil has a protective effect on memory disfunction, while patients are treated with ECT. Several parameters will be invistigated ...

Hippocampal Volume in Young Patients With Major Depression Before and After Combined Antidepressive Therapy

Background Information Combining antidepressants is a well-established medical procedure for the treatment of therapy refractory depression, that may also be applied successfully under non-refractory conditions. The goal of the study is to test this hypothesis. All participants are to be treated with Remergil Soltab®, a sedative antidepressant containing mirtazapine. In ...

Estrogen and Perimenopausal Depression

During perimenopause (the time just prior to menopause), women often notice many biological, psychological, and social changes. In particular, some women experience depressive symptoms during perimenopause that are severe enough to warrant antidepressant medication. Whether or not women with perimenopausal depression respond to antidepressant medication may depend on the level ...

Memantine for Agitation in Dementia

Agitation is a cause of morbidity and mortality in Alzheimer's due to distress and use of medication with side effects. Memantine has beed shown to be associated with less agitation and a recent study by forrest pharmaceuticals failed to recruit. We will perform a 12 week rct in 164 patients ...

Dopaminergic Enhancement of Learning and Memory in Healthy Adults and Patients With Dementia/Mild Cognitive Impairment

Prior work of our group shows that the dopamine precursor levodopa markedly improves word learning success in healthy subjects. In this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial, we probe whether administration of levodopa improves learning performance as compared to placebo administration on neuropsychological tests and in an associative learning paradigm. We postulate ...

Escitalopram and Sleep Architecture in Patients With Major Depressive Disorder

Disturbance of sleep is a prominent symptom in depressive disorders. Alterations of sleep patterns in depressed patients include insomnia, frequent awakenings, early wake-up and non-refreshing sleep. Polysomnographic recordings have confirmed these reports, reporting reduced latency of the first REM episode of the night, with decreased density of rapid eye movements, ...

A Placebo Controlled Trial of the Dopamine D-2 Receptor Agonist Ropinirole in Treatment of 60 Patients With Refractory Bipolar Depression.

Most pharmacologic treatments of depression rely on serotonergic and/or noradrenergic mechanisms. Yet, evidence both from animal studies and from human trials suggests a role for dopaminergic pathways and particularly for dopamine D2-like receptors in the treatment of depression. In recent years, two new selective agonists of dopamine D2-like receptors have ...

Cellular Aging and Neurobiology of Depression Study

Following an initial telephone screen to assess inclusion and exclusion criteria, the evaluation will continue with an in-person evaluation to assess the presence or absence of active medical history and history of major psychiatric illness, as well as review of the consent document. If found to be eligible, participants would ...

Impact of Anticoagulation Therapy on the Cognitive Decline and Dementia in Patients With Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation

Patients will be screened at Intermountain Medical Center and at Intermountain-affiliated anticoagulation clinics in the Salt Lake City region. Patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation will be considered for study. After written informed consent is obtained, subjects who meet eligibility criteria will be randomized 1:1 to 2 treatment arms: Group 1: ...

Pattern Separation Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factors and Mechanisms of Vortioxetine

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved vortioxetine to treat major depressive disorder in 2013. Researchers believe vortioxetine may improve pattern separation and pattern completion (i.e., a neurological function) in people with major depressive disorder; thus, this research study aims to determine how vortioxetine increases a person's ability to think. ...
