High-density EEG in Neurological Disorders

2020-02-16 17:40:48 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to use a new method of high-density electroencephalogram (HD-EEG) recording to map brain areas important for movement, sensation, language, emotion, and cognition.

Description

This study will measure brain waves using high-density EEG. Participants will be asked wear a cap with electrodes attached to it. During the recording, participants may be asked to rest, sleep, or complete a task. The tasks involve viewing pictures, answering questions, speaking, or moving an arm or leg. Recordings generally last between 60-120 minutes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormalities in the serum levels of LIPIDS, including overproduction or deficiency. Abnormal serum lipid profiles may include high total CHOLESTEROL, high TRIGLYCERIDES, low HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL, and elevated LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL.

Conditions with abnormally low levels of LIPOPROTEINS in the blood. This may involve any of the lipoprotein subclasses, including ALPHA-LIPOPROTEINS (high-density lipoproteins); BETA-LIPOPROTEINS (low-density lipoproteins); and PREBETA-LIPOPROTEINS (very-low-density lipoproteins).

A 6.6-kDa protein component of VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; INTERMEDIATE-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; and HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Apo C-I displaces APO E from lipoproteins, modulate their binding to receptors (RECEPTORS, LDL), and thereby decrease their clearance from plasma. Elevated Apo C-I levels are associated with HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA and ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

Antilipemic agent that lowers cholesterol and triglycerides. It decreases low density lipoproteins and increases high density lipoproteins.

Low-density subclass of the high-density lipoproteins, with particle sizes between 8 to 13 nm.
