Cerebral Palsy and the Study of Brain Activity During Motor Tasks

Objective Neural imaging during functional tasks has become more portable and accessible than magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) by utilizing non-invasive near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) as a means to isolate areas of brain activity by measuring blood flow dynamics and electroencephalography (EEG) to measure electrical activity on the cortical surface. Although use …

Phase N/A

Natural History Study of Patients With Neurofibromatosis Type I

BACKGROUND Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1) is an autosomal dominant, progressive genetic disorder characterized by diverse clinical manifestations. Patients with NF1 have an increased risk of developing tumors of the central and peripheral nervous system including plexiform neurofibromas (PN), dermal neurofibromas, optic pathway tumors, brain tumors, malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors …

Phase N/A

Natural History of Stroke: Cause and Development

OBJECTIVE: This is a natural history/disease pathogenesis protocol for evaluation of patients with or at risk for acute stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), or other disturbances of cerebrovascular circulation. The purpose of this protocol is to generate natural history data to serve as the basis for future hypothesis-driven protocols as …

Phase N/A

Neonatal Seizure Registry - Developmental Functional EValuation

Neonatal seizures due to brain injury (acute symptomatic seizures) are associated with high risk of neurodevelopmental disability in infancy. Although prognosis in early childhood is a critical question for parents and providers, outcomes beyond infancy are largely unknown. Further, parents of infants with neonatal seizures are at risk for mental …

Phase N/A

The Effect of Task-oriented EMG-triggered ES on Upper Limb Motor Function in Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy

Upper limb spasticity greatly affects the hand functions of patients with cerebral palsy (CP) and impairs quality of life. The most important goal in rehabilitation; despite the existing deficiencies, the highest level of functional independence of the patient is to increase the quality of life. EMG-triggered biofeedback electrical stimulation (EMG-triggered-BF-ES) …

Taxonomy of Neurorehabilitation Treatments and Outcome Measures: a Multicentre Italian Study

In recent years, neurological rehabilitation focused on evaluating patient's problems, with no rationalization of therapeutic interventions. Few researches investigated the contribution of the components of a neurorehabilitation program to the clinical outcome in everyday clinical practice. Moreover, there is no a standard method to categorize rehabilitative interventions, making difficult to …

Phase N/A

Genetic Characterization of Movement Disorders and Dementias

Objective The objective of this study is to ascertain individuals with a clinical diagnosis of a movement disorder or dementia, their affected and unaffected family members, and unrelated, healthy individuals (to provide control samples); to characterize their phenotypes; and to identify and further characterize genetic contributions to etiology by collecting …

Phase N/A

Pros and Cons of Botulinum Injection Treatment in Cerebral Palsy

Spasticity is defined as an increase in physiological resistance of the muscles associated with a lack of supraspinal inhibition against passive strain. It is a common and prohibitive problem associated with an increase in tendon reflex and tension reflex associated with upper motor neuron dysfunction. One of the most common …

Phase N/A

Familial Investigations of Childhood Cancer Predisposition

During the study, blood samples or other healthy tissue will be obtained from participants, as well as medical and family histories. When possible, leftover tumor samples will also be collected. If participants agree to be re-contacted in the future, they will be asked about once each year to update their …

Phase N/A

Epidemiological Analysis for the Hereditary Transthytetin-related Amyloidosis (hATTR)

Hereditary TransThyRetin Amyloidosis (hATTR) is a slowly progressive condition, that is transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait and is characterized by abnormal extracellular deposits of fibrillar, misfolded proteins (amyloid fibrils) in the body. Amyloid fibrils can be deposited in different body compartments, such as the nerves, heart, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys …
