Soccer demands a complex set of skills, each using different techniques. Your brain plays an important role in this. In our study, we will try to understand how the brain facilitates these skills and how soccer injuries might affect the brain. Specifically, we are looking to see if brain changes ...

Phase N/A

This study is designed to test the hypothesis that patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)treated with Hyperbaric (HBO) will show improvement in function and an increased blood flow as evidenced by single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) scan. Improvement is evidenced by increase in number of pixels on SPECT Scan and ...

Phase N/A

The purpose of the study is to look at a brain-controlled stroke rehabilitation method using electroencephalogram or EEG. There is 1 study visit (2 hours). There will be an EEG recording while undergoing eye-movement controlled games and tasks. Risks and benefits will be discussed as part of the informed consent ...

Phase N/A

The study aims to understand the effectiveness of a six-week course of light exposure on cognitive functioning, mood, activity, and sleep in people that have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) or "concussion." The entire study lasts 13 weeks with only 4 visits to Banner UMC and includes six ...

Phase N/A

We are conducting a study at the University of Arizona to understand the cognitive and psychological health of people who have experienced a brain injury or “concussion.” The study will require one visit to Banner UMC in Tucson. Over a 4-year period, 150 adults with documented mild TBI and 30 ...

Phase N/A

Characteristics of Blood- Brain Barrier Permeability in Neurological Patients

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most common traumatic events, occurring in approximately 200 per 100,000, and is a known risk factor for later development of epileptic seizures. This occurs in up to 17% of TBI patients, and accounts for approximately 20% of symptomatic epilepsies (Annegers, JF. et ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Ketamine (Ketalar) on Intracranial Pressure

Objectives: Ketamine is an effective, safe, rapid, short-acting anesthetic drug, and – contrary to all other anesthetic drugs - it does not decrease blood pressure. It is widely believed that Ketamine increases intracranial pressure (ICP), which prevents its use in many emergency situations, including trauma and specifically in patients with ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of Pharmacological Treatment of Working Memory Impairment After Traumatic Brain Injury: Evaluation With fMRI

Work from our institution has shown that moderate and severe TBI subjects demonstrate an altered cerebral representation when they attempt to process a verbal WM task. Specifically, our data show a post-TBI pattern of activation that is dispersed and more lateralized to the right hemisphere, as compared to healthy controls. ...

Phase N/A

Normothermia in Patients With Acute Cerebral Damage

Pyrexia can exacerbate ischemic neuronal damage and physiological dysfunction after traumatic brain injury and subarachnoid hemorrhage.Fever also represent an important issue occurring in 78% of patients with acute cerebral damage admitted to intensive care unit (ICU). For those patients, normothermia is actually recommended in order to reduce secondary cerebral damage ...

Intensive Insulin Therapy for Strict Glycemic Control in Neurosurgical Patients: Safety and Efficacy

Intensive Insulin Therapy and Strict Glycemic Control (80-120 mg/dL) Versus Standard Insulin Therapy in Neurosurgical Intensive Care Patients (Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, Traumatic Brain Injury, Intracranial Expanding Lesion): Safety, and Efficacy (Mortality, Morbidity, Long Term Neurologic Outcome).
