The purpose of this study is to provide proof-of-concept that directional stimulation and directional recording, in an intraoperative setting, is perceivable in a subject. The tests will b...
The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the safety, feasibility and efficacy of chronic, high frequency stimulation of the subgenual cingulate white matter (Cg25WM) using the ANS ...
Twenty patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) will be included into this single center randomized controlled double-blind clinical trial (RCT) in a cross-over design. The treatm...
Despite many available treatments, there are patients with major depression who remain treatment refractory and chronically disabled. For these severely ill patients, several neurosurgical...
The primary objective is to characterize the programming effects of Boston Scientific Vercise™ PC System using the DBS Directional Lead for bilateral STN DBS for the treatment of Parkins...
Directional Deep Brain Stimulation (D-DBS) allows axially asymmetric electrical field shaping, away from structures causing side-effects. However, concerns regarding the impact on device lifespan and ...
- Deep brain stimulation (DBS) corrects pathological activity of neuropsychiatric brain networks with high frequency current via implanted brain electrodes.- DBS is an effective and safe treatment for...
Directional deep brain stimulation (DBS) constitutes an emerging technology that allows selective stimulation of target structures via partitioned electrode contacts. In order to effectively perform t...
Add-on high frequency deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (dTMS) to bilateral prefrontal cortex in depressive episodes of patients with Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder I, and Major Depressive with Alcohol Use Disorders.
Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) is critically involved in mood and alcohol use disorders.
Standard clinical protocols for repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for major depressive disorder (MDD) apply 10 Hz pulses over left prefrontal cortex, yet little is known about the ...
A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.
Marked depression appearing in the involution period and characterized by hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, and agitation.
A serotonin uptake inhibitor that is used as an antidepressive agent. It has been shown to be effective in patients with major depressive disorders and other subsets of depressive disorders. It is generally more useful in depressive disorders associated with insomnia and anxiety. This drug does not aggravate psychotic symptoms in patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorders. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p309)
Therapy for MOVEMENT DISORDERS, especially PARKINSON DISEASE, that applies electricity via stereotactic implantation of ELECTRODES in specific areas of the BRAIN such as the THALAMUS. The electrodes are attached to a neurostimulator placed subcutaneously.
Inability to experience pleasure due to impairment or dysfunction of normal psychological and neurobiological mechanisms. It is a symptom of many PSYCHOTIC DISORDERS (e.g., DEPRESSIVE DISORDER, MAJOR; and SCHIZOPHRENIA).
