A promising form of enhancing brain function non-invasively involves stimulating the brain using weak magnetic or electric currents. This method is becoming increasingly popular in both clinical and commercial circles; a number of portable, at-home devices are available on the commercial market for personal use. In this study, the investigators aim to determine factors associated with the enhancement of cognitive and motor learning following transcranial direct-current stimulat...
This study involves the treatment of cognitive impairment secondary to moderate to severe brain injury using central thalamic deep brain stimulation. Although all patients will receive stimulation continuously through an implanted pacemaker-like device, half of the patients will have the device deactivated during a blinded assessment phase. The device will be reactivated following this assessment and patients will have the option to continue stimulation in an open-label continu...
The purpose of this study is to determine the early effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in patients with mild traumatic brain injury and persistent post concussion syndrome(PPCS) with cognitive deficits in long term episodic memory and executive function(inhibitory control).
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a novel non-invasive brain stimulation treatment that is effective with no significant side effects. It can potentially be self-administered by patients in their own homes with remote monitoring, substantially reducing treatment costs and increasing accessibility, including to remote areas. This study will evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of home-administered tDCS treatment for depression.
People with serious mental illness often report difficulties with thinking skills like memory. These difficulties can make it harder to perform day-to-day activities. The purpose of this study is to test whether combining a type of non-invasive brain stimulation with computerized cognitive exercises is acceptable to participants, and whether it is helpful in improving a specific type of memory skill in people who have mental health conditions and memory deficits. This st...
For many people with spinal cord injury (SCI), the goal of walking is a high priority. There are many approaches available to restore walking function after SCI; however, these approaches often involve extensive rehabilitation training and access to facilities, qualified staff, and advanced technology that make practicing walking at home difficult. For this reason, developing training approaches that could be easily performed in the home would be of great value. In addition, no...
Lack of adherence to an exercise program is a major problem for older Veterans. Several fall prevention programs fail in the home setting due to lack of adherence. Exercise adherence is dependent on brain function among other factors. Magnetic stimulation of the front part of the brain improves brain function necessary for planning and following-through. The investigators propose a three-phase study in 106 sedentary older Veterans. Everyone will be trained on use of the exergam...
The goal of this project is to identify brain mechanisms by which Noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) could decrease hyperphagia. The investigators will synchronously deliver NIBS and measure brain activity in a randomized, crossover, sham-controlled, fully blind study. This work will reveal brain mechanisms to reduce hyperphagia and may contribute to new therapeutic avenues to treat this eating disorder.
The objective of the study is to determine the effect of non-invasive brain stimulation on craving for tobacco and brain metabolites.
Cerebellar ataxias are a group of disorders caused by cerebellar affections, for which currently no specific treatment is available. Some limited studies verified the effects of cerebellar transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on ataxic symptoms, with good results. The hypothesis is that cerebellar TMS could improve ataxic symptoms in some patients and in these patients, chronic cerebellar stimulation through deep brain stimulation could be a therapeutic option. The rationale...
Alcohol use disorder (AUD) impacts millions of Americans and is associated with significant behavioral, social, economic, medical, and neurobiological dysfunction, yet current behavioral treatments for AUD are only modestly effective. The proposed research will test the efficacy of a novel behavioral intervention, which combines brain stimulation with mindfulness-based relapse prevention, and is hypothesized to improve neural dysfunction and ultimately lead to large effect size...
This study is designed to investigate multitasking deficits, with a particular interest in reducing costs related to dual-tasking (dividing attention between tasks) and task-switching (switching between tasks) using noninvasive brain stimulation.
RATIONALE: Dystonia is a disorder in which the muscles that control voluntary movements are persistently or intermittently contracted (not relaxed). Deep brain stimulation is provided by a small, battery operated implant placed under the skin of the chest that delivers low voltage electrical pulses through a wire under the skin that is connected to a specific area of the brain. Deep brain stimulation may help lessen the symptoms of dystonia. PURPOSE: Phase II/III trial to stud...
Currently, treatment of Parkinson's Disease with deep brain stimulation (DBS) uses continuous high frequency stimulation. The investigators have previously shown that by controlling the stimulation using feedback from the brain and only delivering stimulation when needed side-effects like speech disturbance can be reduced. Here the investigators contrast conventional DBS with adaptive DBS while patients are awake and sleeping.
This study is designed to allow researchers to use transelectrical stimulation to explore the function of the human nervous system and improve diagnosis of neurological disorders. Transcranial electrical stimulation is a non-invasive technique that can be used to stimulate brain activity and gather information about brain function. Electrical stimulation involves placing electrodes on the scalp or skin and passing an electrical current between them. When this is done, an el...
This study investigates the perceptual and cognitive influences of low-intensity electrical brain stimulation (transcranial direct current stimulation; tDCS), versus control (sham) conditions.
The object of this study is to longitudinally collect clinical outcomes of patients receiving deep brain stimulation for movement disorders with the objective of making retrospective comparisons and tracking of risks, benefits, and complications.
Non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) is a safe, painless way to improve brain function. It is used for many conditions, including to help children with disabilities. However, it can be challenging to apply NIBS in very young children and infants. A new, simple form of NIBS called transcranial static magnetic field stimulation (tSMS) is a promising tool for early brain stimulation. tSMS in adults has been shown to be safe, tolerable and have the desired effects on brain activit...
This project aims to investigate novel ways to deliver brain stimulation to Essential Tremor (ET) patients by introducing software changes to their existing devices. The study team aims to investigate safety and efficacy of these new stimulation parameters in patients with ET.
Combining TMS and EEG, this study investigates a personalized therapeutic non-invasive brain stimulation protocol in patients with major depression, whereby the timing of the TMS pulses is synchronized with the instantaneous phase of ongoing brain oscillations in order to modulate the inter-hemispheric left and right dorso-lateral prefrontal cortical brain network.
The brain networks controlling movement are complex, involving multiple areas of the brain. Some neurological diseases, like Parkinson's disease, cause abnormalities in the brain networks. Deep brain stimulation is a treatment that is used to treat these types of neurological diseases. Through this research, the investigators will take advantage of the unique opportunity provided by awake deep brain stimulation surgery to learn more about how the brain functions in a diseased s...
Research indicates that increasing brain excitability might help improve hand function in people with spinal cord injury. Brain stimulation that uses electrodes placed on the surface of the scalp (also called "non-invasive brain stimulation") increases brain excitability and has the potential to make it easier for the brain and nervous system to respond to arm and hand training. The purpose of this study is to compare four different types of stimulation for increasing brain exc...
