Dopaminergic Enhancement of Learning and Memory in Healthy Adults and Patients With Dyslexia

Prior work by our group shows that d-amphetamine and the dopamine precursor levodopa markedly improve word learning success in healthy subjects. In this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial, we probe whether daily administration of levodopa, coupled with a training of grammatical rules, improves the training success in healthy adults as compared ...


Asthma Learning Project

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect on knowledge and behavior of playing an educational asthma computer game during a pediatric Emergency Department (ED) asthma visit among children ages 7 - 15 years. The ED cares for a high-risk population of children who have difficulty accessing preventive ...

Phase N/A

Testing the Neuroscience of Guided Learning in Depression

Major depressive disorder ranks among the most significant causes of mortality and disability in the world. Recent data from the investigators and others highlight that impairments in reward and loss learning are central to depression, have distinct neural substrates, and improve with successful treatment. Together, these findings suggest an urgent ...
