Social Cognition Training and Cognitive Remediation

Social cognition refers to mental operations that enable people to perceive, interpret constantly changing social informations. These processes allow people to rapidly, effortlessly and flexibly perceive and interpret rapidly-changing social information, and respond appropriately to social stimuli. Besides, this ability gives meaning to the actions of others. Impairments in this field may largely underlie social dysfunctions and reduce adaptive skills. Moreover, social cognitiv...


Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) in the Treatment of First Rank Symptoms (FRS) on Schizophrenia

First rank symptoms are core symptoms of schizophrenia. the investigators want to offer an integrative approach to better understanding of the mechanisms involved in the first rank symptoms and therefore, in schizophrenia, as well as the neuronal modulation mechanisms obtained by rTMS. It will be to pass a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at rest for healthy volunteers, and for patients before and after rTMS modulation, to view brain structures activated in the rest...

Hearing Aids and the Brain

Hearing aids are used to improve audibility for patients with hearing loss and improve speech perception. In addition to these immediate benefits, amplification has the potential to have long-term effects on higher level auditory processing abilities, such as cognition or other abilities required for complex listening tasks. These long-term acclimatization effects are not well understood and merit further behavioral and physiological examination. Hearing aids will be fit on ine...

Effects of Probiotics on Symptoms of Depression

Preclinical and clinical studies have shown that consuming probiotics can improve mood, anxiety, and cognition, as well as alter brain activity in both rodents and healthy humans. Data from our recent open-label, 8-week pilot study provided the first evidence of these effects in depressed patients, with significant improvements observed in overall mood, anhedonia, and sleep quality. To further support this evidence and expand upon the search for biomarkers in depression, data f...

HIV, Computerized Depression Therapy & Cognition

Good Days Ahead (GDA) is a computerized treatment program developed to address symptoms of depression and anxiety. It teaches the basic principles of computerized behavioral therapy (CBT) in nine therapy sessions, each typically taking 30 minutes to complete. GDA has been found to be as effective as face-to-face CBT in decreasing symptoms of depression and anxiety. Patients receiving treatment delivered by a computer can be provided with different levels of guidance and support...

Improving Cognition Via Exercise in Schizophrenia

People with schizophrenia display a broad range of cognitive impairments that have been identified as major determinants of poor functioning and disability. The goal of the proposed study is to examine the impact of exercise training on cognition, daily functioning, and biomarkers of cognitive change in people with schizophrenia.

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Patients With Alzheimer Disease

Randomized clinical trial, comparative and single blind aims to determine effects on cognition, psychological and behavioral symptoms and functionality of 5 Hz repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) administered over left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (lDLPFC) compared to six regions protocol, divided in two sub-conditions: day 1 (Broca area, Wernicke area and lDLPFC) alternated by day 2 (left and right parietal association cortex, and right dorsolateral prefronta...

Home-based Virtual Reality Training After Stroke

Virtual reality (VR) training (VRT) uses computer software to track a user's movements and allow them to interact with a game presented on a TV. It is fun and engaging and may encourage the user to do more exercise. VRT is increasingly being used for rehabilitation after stroke. Patients often require ongoing therapy post-discharge from inpatient rehabilitation. Outpatient therapy may be unavailable due to waiting lists, transportation issues, distance etc.; therefore, home-bas...

The Effect of Exercise on Cognition in Older Adults At-risk for Diabetes: A Feasibility Pilot Study

Older adults with type 2 diabetes experience cognitive decline and are at higher risk for developing dementia. Consequently, older adults at-risk for developing type 2 diabetes (based on body mass, glucose levels) are at higher risk for cognitive decline, and intervening at this point may prevent or delay the onset of such decline. One promising lifestyle intervention that has been shown to improve cognitive function in other populations is exercise. However, before investigato...
