Modified Story Memory Technique (mSMT) in Persons With TBI

Outcome measures will assess objective memory abilities, everyday memory abilities and patterns of cerebral activation during learning. A long-term follow-up assessment will be conducted, designed to measure the impact of the mSMT 3 months following treatment completion. Alternate forms will be utilized wherever available.

Phase N/A

Efficacy of Ketamine Infusion Compared With Traditional Anti-epileptic Agents in Refractory Status Epilepticus

The traditional treatment for refractory status epilepticus includes diazepam, midazolam, valproic acid, thiopental and propofol. These medications fail to control seizure activity in 20-40% of patients. This is attributed to decrease in activity of gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors along with reciprocal up regulation of N-Methyl-D-aspartate receptors. Glutamate activation of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors ...

Investigating Usability of c-SIGHT in the Homes of Brain Injury Survivors

A brain injury can damage the brain, so that it no longer receives information about the space around one side of the world. If this happens, people may not be aware of anything on one side, usually the same side they also lost their movement (the most affected side). This ...

Clinical Trial to Improve the Magnetic Levator Prosthesis

Blepharoptosis (incomplete opening of the eyelids) occurs because of a disruption in the normal agonist-antagonist neuro-muscular complex balance. An external device, if able to generate an appropriately balanced force, could restore eyelid movement by performing the paralyzed function; for example, a ptotic (droopy) eyelid could be opened, and the functioning ...

Phase N/A

Speed of Processing Training to Improve Cognition in Traumatic Brain Injury and Mild Cognitive Impairment

The current proposal is designed to apply this treatment protocol to a large sample of individuals with moderate to severe TBI with documented impairment in PS. The goals of the trial are to (a) test the efficacy of this treatment protocol within a TBI population, (b) evaluate the impact of ...

Cerebrovascular Reactivity Assessed With fNIRS as a Biomarker of TCVI After Acute Traumatic Brain Injury in Military

Background and significance: Currently, more that 5.3 million Americans (or 2% of the population) live with disabilities resulting from TBI. Among OEF/OIF Veterans, TBI incidence estimates as high as 23% have been reported, with mild TBI (mTBI) being the most common.1 This proposal addresses the recommendations of the consensus of ...

Strategy Based Technique to Enhance Memory (STEM) for Improving New Learning and Memory (NLM) in Moderate to Severe TBI

Impairments in higher level cognitive processing, such as new learning and memory, are common in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)and negatively impact multiple aspects of everyday life, including occupational and social functioning. Despite this, few studies have attempted to remediate these cognitive deficits in order to improve everyday functioning. While not ...

SEEG Guided RF-TC v.s. ATL for mTLE With HS

Nowadays, more and more patients received SEEG implantation for the evaluation of intractable seizures. SEEG is not only a diagnostic method to locate the origin of the epileptic seizures but also a media to treat or to cure this disease. Using radiofrequency thermocoagulation, we are able to coagulate some part ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Risk of Cognitive Deficit After Surgery of Epilepsy by Dynamic Spectral Imaging (ISD) of the Cognitive Functions in Patients Explored in StereoElectroEncephaloGraphy (SEEG)

Epilepsy affects between 0.5 and 0.7% of the European population. Despite the availability of numerous drug treatments, one third of patients still have seizures, which are associated with significant cognitive and social complications and excess mortality. In these patients, surgical treatment to remove the epileptogenic zone (EZ), the region of ...

Phase N/A

Does Short-Term Anti-Seizure Prophylaxis After Traumatic Brain Injury Decrease Seizure Rates?

The efficacy of anti-seizure prophylaxis in head injury patients remains controversial. Current recommendations for the use of anti-seizure prophylaxis are based upon a single institution study that has not been reproduced with other studies contradicting their conclusions. The proposed study will be a randomized prospective study at Loyola University Medical ...
