Study of the Neural Basis of Analogical Reasoning

Frontal patients are impaired in categorisation and analogical reasoning tasks, and different functional imaging studies from our group have shown the involvement of the prefrontal cortex in categorisation and analogy tasks. The aim of this project is to test our hypotheses about the role of the prefrontal cortex in explicit ...

Phase N/A

Gait Analysis in Neurological Disease

This study aims to determine whether the gait patterns in these subjects differ in predictable and quantifiable ways from those of age- and sex-matched healthy controls. This will be conducted by asking 40 Parkinsonian disorder subjects and 40 age-matched healthy control subjects to walk 9 trials over an 18 ft ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers in Parkinsonian Syndromes

The differential diagnosis between Parkinson's disease, multiple system atrophy and progressive supranuclear palsy can be very difficult in early disease. PD, MSA and PSP are neurodegenerative disorders. PD and MSA belong to the alpha-synucleinopathies, which are characterized by the abnormal accumulation of alpha-synuclein. Alpha-synuclein accumulates in intraneuronal Lewy bodies in ...

Phase N/A

Chromatic Pupillometry to Assess the Melanopsin-Light Pathway in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

In 1963, Richardson, Steele and Olszewski published a landmark clinical report on 8 cases of supranuclear ophthalmoplegia, pseudobulbar palsy, nuchal dystonia and dementia and established the syndrome of heterogeneous system degeneration as a clinicopathological entity now known as PSP. The disease has a characteristic onset in the sixth decade (range ...

Phase N/A

A Molecular Anatomic Imaging Analysis of Tau in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

This study is designed to learn more about overall tau burden in the brain of patients with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).

Phase N/A

The Swedish BioFINDER 2 Study

GENERAL AIMS: Develop methods for early and accurate diagnosis of different dementia disorders. This is important not only for the clinical diagnostic work-up, but also for selection of patients to clinical trials. Because dementia is very common among the elderly, but often misdiagnosed, we need to develop minimally invasive, reliable ...

Phase N/A

PROgressive Supranuclear Palsy CorTico-Basal Syndrome Multiple System Atrophy Longitudinal Study UK

There are a group of neurodegenerative disorders which are often initially diagnosed to be Parkinson's disease (PD), but which are biologically and clinically distinct, and follow a malignant disease course. The three most common conditions are PSP, CBD and MSA. These conditions have a median survival of approximately 6-7 years ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of RIVAstigmine on Motor Cognitive and Behavioural Impairment in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is a rare neurodegenerative disease from the parkinsonian syndrome group. It represents 5 to 10% of all parkinsonian syndromes and affects 3,000 to 10,000 persons in France. PSP is characterised by a doparesistant parkinsonism with axial signs such as early gait instability and falls, oculomotor signs ...

Phase

Efficacy Study for Treatment of Dementia in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

to show that 1. patients improve and stabilize after 12 -24 week treatment with rivastigmine in memory function 2. use of rivastigmine has a positive effect on apathy in PSP patients 3. therapy with rivastigmine has a no positive benefit on speech and overall results of the MMST 4. changes ...

Phase

Study of the Distractibility Syndrome in Patients With Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

The syndrome of distractibility is a behavioral disorder induced by a lesion or a dysfunction of the frontal lobe. This sign is frequent in patients with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), a neurodegenerative disorder with severe neuronal loss in the prefrontal cortex and cholinergic systems, in particular in the Meynert basalis ...
