The UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience in Los Angeles, CA, is conducting a study looking at similarities and differences in how the brain works between bipolar disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Children between the ages of 7 and 17 years old, with a diagnosis of Bipolar I, Bipolar II, or Bipolar NOS, are currently being recruited for this study looking at similarities and differences in how the brain works between bipolar disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The study involves a comprehensive evaluation at intake, cognitive assessment, EEG, and functional MRI, done over the course of 2 or 3 visits. Participants will be paid $125 for their participation; parents will be compensated $25 per visit for travel expenses. This study does not provide treatment. However, with participants' consent, the assessment information can be shared with the child's clinician or psychiatrist and a letter with the results from cognitive testing can be prepared, which can be useful in school planning. Referrals for treatment can also be provided.

Between 40% and 60% bipolar patients experience neurocognitive impairment not only during acute mood episodes but also during remission periods. These rates are quite similar to those rep...
This study will assess the effects of bipolar disorder on brain activity and will determine if medication changes the brain activity in people with bipolar disorder.
Bipolar disorder is a mental disease characterized by mood dysregulation and arises from manic, depressive or mixed episodes. The observations of the patient's speech and language behaviou...
It is hypothesized that the intranasal administration of insulin will enhance hippocampal-dependent neurocognitive performance in euthymic patients with bipolar I or II disorder. This nov...
The investigators propose to examine both resting state activity and functional activity during rumination and during self-processing to study the relationship between neural correlates of...
Attentional deficit has been shown to exist in adult and pediatric bipolar disorder across the life span. Given that emotional dysregulation is central to bipolar disorder, this study hypothesizes tha...
The comorbidity of bipolar disorder (BD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) has been widely described. Several studies have investigated the cognitive profiles of BD and OCD patients, but studies...
To assess predictors of the diagnosis of bipolar disorder is important since it is known that the early diagnosis is associated with a better response to the treatment. Thus, the aim of this systemati...
Bipolar disorder (BD) is difficult to distinguish from other psychiatric disorders. Neuroimaging studies can identify objective markers of BD risk.
Despite their widespread use in bipolar disorder, there is controversy surrounding the inclusion of antidepressant medications in the disorder's management. We sought to identify which demographic, so...
Diagnoses of DEMENTIA and AMNESTIC DISORDER are subsumed here. (DSM-5)
A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.
A dibenzothiazepine and ANTIPSYCHOTIC AGENT that targets the SEROTONIN 5-HT2 RECEPTOR; HISTAMINE H1 RECEPTOR, adrenergic alpha1 and alpha2 receptors, as well as the DOPAMINE D1 RECEPTOR and DOPAMINE D2 RECEPTOR. It is used in the treatment of SCHIZOPHRENIA; BIPOLAR DISORDER and DEPRESSIVE DISORDER.
An element in the alkali metals family. It has the atomic symbol Li, atomic number 3, and atomic weight 6.94. Salts of lithium are used in treating BIPOLAR DISORDER.
Rare congenital disorder with multiple anomalies including: characteristic dysmorphic craniofacial features, musculoskeletal abnormalities, neurocognitive delay, and high prevalence of cancer. Germline mutations in H-Ras protein can cause Costello syndrome. Costello syndrome shows early phenotypic overlap with other disorders that involve MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM (e.g., NOONAN SYNDROME and cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome).
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
Psychiatry is the study of mental disorders and their diagnosis, management and prevention. Conditions include schizophrenia, severe depression and panic disorders among others. There are pharmaceutical treatments as well as other therapies to help...
