Cannabis Schizophrenia and Reward: Self-Medication and Agonist Treatment?

Substance use disorders are strikingly common in patients with schizophrenia and contribute to its morbidity and cost to society. We have proposed a neurobiological formulation suggesting that cannabis and other substance use in these patients may ameliorate a dysfunction in the brain reward circuit(thus serving a "self-medication" function), while also ...

Imaging GABAergic/Glutamatergic Drugs in Bipolar Alcoholics Alcoholics

Bipolar disorder (BD) is the Axis I psychiatric condition most strongly associated with substance use disorder (SUD); diagnostic co-occurrence is particularly high between BD and alcohol use disorder (AUD). Individuals with co-occurring SUD and BD (SUD+BD) have substantially worse clinical outcomes than those with either BD or SUD alone. Nonetheless, ...

Phase

A Pilot Study Investigating the Efficacy of Minocycline and N-Acetyl Cysteine for Bipolar Depression

The investigators are doing this research study to find out if minocycline alone, N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) alone, or the combination of minocycline and NAC can help people with bipolar depression when added to lithium. The investigators also want to find out if minocycline, NAC, and the combination of minocycline and ...

Prefrontal Cortical Engagement Through Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation in Schizophrenia

Cognitive deficits are a strong predictor of functional outcome in schizophrenia, yet poorly remediated by current treatments. Disturbances in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) function underlie core impairments such as in cognitive control and thus represent a critical target for novel therapeutics. Initial studies indicate transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) may be ...

Phase N/A

The Gut Microbiota of Bipolar and Depression

Background: MDD (Major Depressive disorder) and BD (Bipolar disorder), whose specific pathogenesis is still unclear, are both a multi-factorial disease being caused by biological, psychological and social factors. Accumulating evidence suggests that gut microbiota play an important role in brain functions and in the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric diseases, such as ...

Phase N/A

PrEP and Consumptions

Interventional, multi-center pilot study, including all subjects aged 18 years or older presenting in consultation for a PrEP renewal. The newsletter and a self-questionnaire will be systematically given in the waiting room to any PrEP consultant to evaluate the consumption of psychoactive substances (ASSIST questionnaire) and to identify anxio-depressive disorders ...

Phase N/A

Enhancing Cognitive Training Through Exercise Following a First Schizophrenia Episode

The Cognitive Training and Exercise intervention consists of 24 weeks of systematic computerized cognitive training, 4 hours per week, plus aerobic exercise, 150 minutes per week. The Cognitive Training Intervention includes the same systematic cognitive training. The first 12 weeks involve neurocognitive training, using training exercises from Posit Science Brain ...

Phase N/A

Laughter Yoga Intervention for People With Major Depressive Disorder

72 community dwelling people with co-morbid symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress who are diagnosed and treated for major depressive disorder (MDD) will be recruited into the study from the Community Psychiatric Service (CPS) of Castle Peak Hospital. After baseline measurements, 36 participants will be randomly allocated into the Laughter ...

Phase N/A

IVIG and Rituximab in Antibody-associated Psychosis - SINAPPS2

Investigators propose a randomised double-blinded placebo-controlled trial to test the hypothesis that immunotherapy is an effective treatment of antibody-associated psychosis, either first episode of psychosis or relapse following previous remission. Immunotherapy for the trial consists of one cycle of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG: 2g/kg over days 1-4) followed by two infusions ...

Phase

Rostral Dorsal Cingulum Bundle Connectivity in Patients With Bipolar Disorder Type I

The overall goal of this study is to employ diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and tractography to investigate differences in connectivity in the rostral dorsal cingulum bundle (CB) in patients with bipolar disorder type I (BDI) compared to matched controls, and to utilize this information to determine if high-frequency deep brain stimulation ...
