Brain Function After Cardiac Arrest

The aim of this longitudinal study is to determine whether brain function is affected after a cardiac arrest. The primary question is whether cognitive function is affected after cardiac arrest and whether it changes over time (during the first year after the event), compared with a healthy control group. Brain function during cognitive tasks and emotion processing will also be studied using functional MRI (fMRI). Another aim is to study whether clinical outcomes such as...

Effects of Exercise and Cognitive Training on Cognitive Function in Older Adults

The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of the effects of exercise and cognitive training on improving brain function in healthy older adults who may be at risk for developing Alzheimer's Disease.


Brain, Cardiac Hemodynamics and Cognition During Exercise in Subjects With Various Cardiovascular Profiles

People with cardiovascular risk (CV) factors (obesity, diabetes, etc...) or established heart disease (such as coronary heart disease or chronic heart failure) often have cognitive dysfunction as compared to people without CV risk factors or heart disease. Among the mechanisms, a reduced cardiac output and cerebral blood flow in those people have been suggested. The aim of this study was to compare resting cognitive function, maximal cardiopulmonary function, cardiac output and...

Does Modified Ultrafiltration Improves Inflammatory Response and Cardiopulmonary Function After CABG Procedures?

The inflammatory response after cardiac surgery increases mortality and morbidity. Modified ultrafiltration (MUF) has been shown to decrease the post-cardiac surgery inflammatory response, to improve respiratory function, and cardiac performance in pediatric patients; however, this approach has not been well established in adults. The investigators therefore hypothesized that MUF can decrease the post-cardiac surgery inflammatory response and can improve cardiopulmonary functio...

Evaluation Cardiac Function With Echo and BNP in Obstetrical Patients With/Without Cardiac Disease

Maternal cardiac disease complicates approximately 2 percent of pregnancies and is the leading cause of non-obstetrical maternal death. Evaluating cardiac function and dysfunction is a complex process requiring skilled clinicians and technology such as ECG, long-term monitoring, and echocardiography. A fast, easily obtained blood test for B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) has been developed that can give evidence for heart muscle stretch and dysfunction among adults with suspect...

Examining Cognitive Function and Brain Abnormalities in Adults With Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle cell disease (SCD), also known as sickle cell anemia, is an inherited blood disease that can cause intense pain episodes and may lead to organ failure. Preliminary studies have shown that adults with SCD may have brain abnormalities that contribute to problems with cognitive functioning, including attention and memory difficulties. This study will use brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and neuropsychological testing to examine the differences in cognitive functioning...

The Effect of Consumption of Almonds and Snack Mix Daily for 6 Months on Cognitive Function in Older Adults

Cognitive impairment is also a major risk factor for development of dementia later in life. Findings from recent studies suggest that the there are many nutrients contained in foods that may be important in cognitive function in the elderly. This study evaluates long-term intervention with almonds and snack mix as a treatment strategy for age-related cognitive impairment which could possibly prevent the onset of dementia. The proposed study is designed as a randomized, placebo...

Examining Cognitive Function and Brain Abnormalities in Adults With Sickle Cell Disease - Pilot Intervention Study

Sickle cell disease (SCD), also known as sickle cell anemia, is an inherited blood disease that can cause intense pain episodes and may lead to organ failure. Preliminary studies have shown that adults with SCD may have brain abnormalities that contribute to problems with cognitive functioning, including attention and memory difficulties. This study will use brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and neuropsychological testing to examine the differences in cognitive functioning...

Neurovascular Determinants of Cognitive Function in Adults With Sickle Cell Disease

Cognitive impairment is a poorly understood, serious, and emerging complication for adult patients with sickle cell disease. Because there is extensive microvascular damage from oxidative damage in sickle cell disease, the investigators hypothesize that this is also present in the cerebral microvasculature to cause cognitive impairment. The investigators plan to test this by correlating markers of inflammation and oxidative damage with cognitive performance and 7 Tesla brain MR...

Vision-based Speed of Processing Cognitive Training and Mild Cognitive Impairment

This project seeks to identify neural changes that occur in adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) after engagement in computerized cognitive training. In addition, this project aims to identify physiological factors that may bolster effects of the training on cognitive function. Individuals with MCI are at high risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD). Understanding how cognitive training protects cognitive function in MCI can contribute to development of effective interventions...

Effects of Pulmonary Rehabilitation on Cognitive Function in Patients With Severe to Very Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a leading cause of mortality worldwide. It is a systemic disease which includes pulmonary, cardiac, muscular, digestive and cognitive impairments. Pulmonary rehabilitation is a symptomatic treatment to reduce dyspnea and functional incapacity. However, it effects on cognitive dysfunction are not well known. The aim of this study is to assess the effects of a comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation program on cognitive dysfunction...

Computer-based Cognitive Training for Parkinson Disease

Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative, progressive illness. It is a multi-system disease that influences not only the motor but also the cognitive and autonomic systems. The main cognitive impairment in individuals with PD is found in executive function (EF). EF is defined as a set of cognitive skills necessary for planning, monitoring and executing sequences of complex activities. The primary study hypothesis is that computer-based training aimed at improving execut...

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...

Effect of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning on Cognitive Function After Cardiac Surgery

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning on cognitive function in patients undergoing cardiac surgery compared to control intervention.

Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFA) Status and Cognitive Function in Healthy Young Adults

To date, the relationship between omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) in cognitively intact individuals has only been examined in a limited number of studies; it is at present unknown whether supplementation with n-3 PUFAs can improve cognitive function and mood in this population. Further to this, it still remains to be established whether a relationship exists between peripheral fatty acid status—reflective of dietary n-3 PUFA intake—and cognitive function in ...

Exercise Training and Cognitive Function in Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), affects over 45% of all individuals over 70 years of age. Patients with moderate CKD have more than a two-fold increased risk of cognitive impairment than those without CKD; furthermore, as many as 20-70% of patients with CKD have established cognitive impairment and overt dementia. The burden of cognitive impairment and dementia leads to functional decline and accelerated loss of independence, contributing to the tremendous individual, societal, a...

Parkinson Disease and DBS: Cognitive Effects in GBA Mutation Carriers

Every year, approximately 9,000 Parkinson disease (PD) patients undergo deep brain stimulator (DBS) placement into the subthalamic nucleus (STN-DBS). Studies suggest that PD patients with mutations in the glucocerebrosidase (GBA) gene are at high risk for cognitive impairment and approximately 10-17% of subjects undergoing DBS carry GBA mutations. There may be an interaction between STN-DBS, which also impairs cognitive function, and GBA, resulting in worsened cognitive functio...

The Effect of Intranasal Insulin Administration on Cognitive Function After Cardiac Surgery.

Decline in cognitive function after surgery occurs most commonly in older patients and patients undergoing major surgeries, such as heart surgery. Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction (POCD) may last a prolonged period of time while Postoperative Delirium (POD) is a more acute disturbance in attention, awareness and cognition. The cause of POCD and POD are not fully understood, however some of the pathophysiology of POCD is similar to that of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Ins...

Linking Cognitive Functioning to Multimodal Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common progressive neurologic disorder to occur in adults of working-age. Despite longstanding recognition of cognitive impairment as a symptom of MS, two obstacles in measurement have limited understanding its biological basis, and therefore identifying targeted options for management. First is the absence of a sensitive and precise measure of cognitive impairment. Second is the absence of an index of disease status linked to brain pathophys...

Buying Time: Improving Sleep to Promote Cognitive Function in Older Adults

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a comprehensive group education combined with a lifestyle "activation" program that includes (a) sleep hygiene course, (b) physical activity promotion, and (c) bright light therapy, can improve both sleep quality and cognitive function among 96 community-dwelling older adults.

A Dose-Response Study of Modafinil Effects on Cognition in Healthy Adults and in Schizophrenia Patients

Patients with schizophrenia have problems in thinking, known as cognitive dysfunction. This includes many types of cognitive dysfunction, such as in attention, memory and language. These problems may explain why patients with schizophrenia think and act in unusual ways, and often have problems managing aspects of their lives that healthy adults take for granted. Unfortunately, the biochemical aspects of these dysfunctions are presently unknown, and it is not clear whether curre...

The Activity Intervention for Chemobrain

Cognitive dysfunction following chemotherapy is an adverse treatment effect that impacts the quality of life for many cancer survivors receiving this adjuvant therapy. A strong body of evidence now indicates that that the initiation of a regular exercise program, at levels that are readily achievable by most adults (3-5 d/wk, 30-45 min/session), can improve cognitive function. Importantly, the domains of cognitive function that are enhanced by exercise participation are the s...

Living Alone in Old Age With Cognitive Impairment

The purpose of this study is to better understand the experience of living alone in older age with cognitive impairment. We recruit adults 55+ living alone with cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer's disease or mild cognitive impairment. This study investigates the priorities and concerns of older adults living alone with cognitive impairment. Participants are interviewed 5 times for one hour in their homes within 3 months at a time that works for them.

Use of a Hand-held Digital Cognitive Aid in Simulated Cardiac Arrest.

Cardiac arrest is one of the most stressful situations to be managed. Our first study (MAX, accepted for publication BJA) clearly showed that it cannot be compared to other urgent and stressful situations (malignant hyperthermia, anaphylactic shock, acute toxicity of local anesthetics, severe and symptomatic hyperkaliemia) whose management was significantly improved with the help of a digital cognitive aid. The present study exclusively deals with the management of cardiac arr...
