Human CNS Tau Kinetics in Tauopathies

Tauopathies are neurodegenerative diseases with tau pathology. These tauopathies are the most common pathology in neurodegenerative diseases, and they are reaching epidemic proportions. The rates of tau kinetics are central to understanding normal and abnormal processing and production and clearance of tau kinetics in humans to help understand the causes ...

Phase N/A

Neurologic Manifestations of the Arbovirus Infection in Colombia

NEAS is led by Dr. Carlos Pardo-Villamizar at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and Drs. Beatriz Parra and Lyda Osorio at Universidad del Valle (UV) in Colombia. They have established a collaborative network with physicians, neurologists and experts in microbiology and epidemiology in that country. NEAS is actively recruiting patients in ...

Advancing Research and Treatment for Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (ARTFL)

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FTLD) is the neuropathological term for a collection of rare neurodegenerative diseases that correspond to four main overlapping clinical syndromes: frontotemporal dementia (FTD), primary progressive aphasia (PPA), corticobasal degeneration syndrome (CBS) and progressive supranuclear palsy syndrome (PSPS). The goal of this study is to build a FTLD ...

Cerebral Palsy Hip Outcomes Project - International Multi-centre Study

Background: Children with severe cerebral palsy (CP) are at high risk for dislocating their hips. These hips are associated with contractures and pain, which can interfere with care-giving, seating, positioning, mobility and quality of life. The primary purpose of this project (Aim 2) is to evaluate the effectiveness of different ...

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

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

Evaluating a New Knee-Ankle-Foot Brace to Improve Gait in Children With Movement Disorders

Objective The purpose of this protocol is to evaluate several configurations of a prototype Extension Assist Knee-Ankle-Foot Orthosis (EA-KAFO) in patients with cerebral palsy (CP), muscular dystrophy (MD), spina bifida (SB), or incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI) who have knee extension deficiency. Three forms of assistance will be provided at ...

Phase N/A

The VTCRI Neuromotor Research Clinic

The VTCRI Neuromotor Research Clinic was established and opened in May of 2013 to provide intensive therapeutic services to individuals with motor impairment secondary to neuromotor disorders. It is direct by Dr. Stephanie DeLuca and based on the principles surrounding ACQUIREc Therapy. ACQUIREc Therapy is an evidenced-based approach to pediatric ...

Phase N/A

Innovative Measures of Speech and Swallowing Dysfunction in Neurological Disorders

Speech and swallowing abnormalities are important symptoms associated with disorders of the central nervous system, motor neuron disease (such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), myasthenia gravis, and primary muscle conditions. In addition to characterizing the evolution in muscle architecture that could underlie associated orofacial weakness, identifying new ways to measure these ...

Phase N/A

MRI-based Biomarkers for Predicting Punctate White Matter Lesions in Neonates

As a common white matter (WM) disease in preterm neonates, punctate white matter lesion (PWML) frequently leads to the abnormalities of brain development (e.g. the motor, visual and auditory disorders), even to cerebral palsy (CP) and amblyopia during childhood. However, it is lack of certain methods in identifying the prognosis ...
