The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of animal-assisted therapy on brain activity of inpatients at REHAB Basel with severe disorders of consciousness. To do so, the frontal brain activity of 20 the inpatients at REHAB Basel in a minimally conscious state is investigated ...


Brain Mechanisms of Overeating in Children

The proposed research will follow healthy weight children who vary by family risk for obesity to identify the neurobiological and appetitive traits that are implicated in overeating and weight gain during the critical pre-adolescent period. The investigator's central hypothesis is that increased intake from large portions of energy dense foods is due in part to reduced activity in brain regions implicated in inhibitory control and decision making, combined with increased activi...

Effects of Deep Brain Stimulation of the Dentate Nucleus on Cerebellar Ataxia

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...


Pilot Study of the Effect of Ibudilast on Neuroinflammation in Methamphetamine Users

Addiction to methamphetamine is a serious health problem in the United States. Right now, there are no medications that a doctor can give someone to help them stop using methamphetamine. More research is needed to develop drugs for methamphetamine addiction. Ibudilast (the study drug) is a drug that could help people addicted to methamphetamine. The investigators are interested to know if the study drug can help some symptoms that methamphetamine can cause, specifically inflam...

Study design: Randomized placebo-controlled double-blind trial. Study population: 90 ...

The Effect of Aging on Value Based Decision-making

The investigators propose to study the effect of aging on the neural circuitry involved in valuation and value reasoning and to relate it to choice anomalies and inconsistencies. Quantifying and characterizing valuation-based decision-making deficits in older adults, and their relationship to the aging brain, can inform and facilitate intervention - both at the level of the individual and at the level of policy.

Spectroscopic and Diffusion Weighted Analysis of the Effects of Dexamethasone on High Altitude Cerebral Oedema (HACE)

When the brain detects a drop in oxygen levels in the blood (hypoxia) there is a compensatory increase in blood flow. Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is a cluster of symptoms which commonly occur in those ascending to high altitude and experiencing hypoxia due to increased blood flow and then swelling in the brain. Symptoms include headache, nausea, insomnia and fatigue. The exact mechanisms by which AMS develops remains poorly understood. Dexamethasone has been shown to reduce t...

Lexical Priming by Music in Alzheimer's Disease and Healthy Aging

While verbal memory is quickly reached in the wake of Alzheimer's disease, the musical memory remains preserved until a late stage of the disease. This observation encouraged the development of music-based therapies in the management of neurocognitive and behavioral disorders that characterize Alzheimer's disease. In order to develop rehabilitation programs that effectively target cognitive functions to stimulate, it is necessary to understand the mechanisms underlying this ben...

Cognitive and Psychiatric Effects of Linaclotide on Patients With Constipation

Irritable Bowel syndrome - constipation predominant (IBS-C) is a chronic and disabling,disorder of the gut that is characterized by abdominal pain or discomfort. Approximately 50% of patients with IBS-C will also meet criteria for anxiety or depression. Anti depressant medication is widely used in the treatment of IBS. Linaclotide is a novel medication for IBS that is also effective at relieving pain associated with IBS, which may be in part to signalling between the gut and t...

Reducing Hemodialysis Induced Recurrent Brain Injury to Improve Patients' Lives

Patients who receive dialysis for kidney failure suffer severe cognitive impairment. Hemodialysis causes circulatory stress and ischemia, which causes severe brain injury. It has been demonstrated that a procedure known as Remote Ischemic Preconditioning(RIPC), which involves wrapping a blood pressure cuff around a patient's leg and inflating has the potential of protecting many organs, such as the heart from the effects of dialysis. Our study aims to investigate this phenomeno...

The Sensorimotor Locus of Balance Control in Elderly Gait

The aging population is at an exceptionally high risk of debilitating falls, contributing significantly to reduced independence and quality of life. It remains extremely challenging to screen for falls risk, and programs designed to mitigate falls risk have only modestly influenced the sizeable portion of the aging population experiencing one or more falls annually. Balance control in standing and walking depends on integrating reliable sensory feedback and on planning and exec...

Effect of tDCS on Brain Organization and Motor Recovery

Neurological deficits and motor disorders are extremely common after stroke. Physical therapies can improve the autonomy of these patients, but despite an intensive stationary neurorehabilitation, severe deficits often persist. Complementary therapies that could improve recovery would therefore be very welcome. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) induces, in a non-invasive way, a transient inhibitory or excitatory neuromodulation of certain cerebral regions. An incr...

Study of the Reversibility of Vigilance Dysfunction at 6 Months of Continuous Positive Airways Pressure (CPAP) in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS)

It is a monocentric prospective pilot study in Poitiers University Hospital, specifically analyzing the vigilance disorders in the Obstructive Sleep Apnea Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS) and their reversibility after 6 months of Continuous positive airways pressure (CPAP). All subjects were administered a test of vigilance (Test of Attentional Performance) both before and after the 6 months of CPAP. The main objective is the study of the reversibility of alertness disorders on the ...

The Getting Active Project: Improving Social Well-Being in Later Life

The many negative outcomes associated with loneliness in older people have rendered loneliness itself a new public health target. Older adults who feel lonely carry increased risk for reduced quality of life, morbidity, and mortality. The risk of premature mortality related to loneliness is at least as large as the risks arising from such factors as obesity, physical inactivity, alcohol misuse, and smoking. Volunteering is a promising intervention for reducing loneliness in lat...

Multimodal Neuroimaging Analysis After Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI), including concussion, is a real public health problem. Indeed mTBI might induce long-term brain disorders with increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases and the healthcare costs can be significant for both the individual and the society. However mTBI is called the "silent epidemic", because of the lack of research in this field in France as well as in the rest of the world. Most of the time, mTBI is associated with sports injuries, road tr...

A Long-Term Trial Investigating Safety and Efficacy of TransCon hGH in Children With Growth Hormone Deficiency Who Have Completed a Prior TransCon hGH Clinical Trial

A multicenter, phase 3, long-term extension trial of TransCon hGH administered once-weekly in children with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) who previously participated in a phase 3 TransCon hGH trial. Approximately 400 children (males and females) with GHD will be included. All study participants will receive TransCon hGH. This is a global trial that will be conducted in, but not limited to, the United States, Poland, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Armenia, Russia and Australia.

Correlation Intraocular Pressure With Intracranial Pressure

Severe Trauma Brain Injury (TBIs) is a public health problem and monitoring of Intracranial Pressure (ICP) is a determinant key of it prognosis. Within the noninvasive methods to estimate the ICP, the measurement of intraocular pressure has been proposed because of its biological plausibility (proximity of the eye to the encephalic contend). Objective. Correlate intraocular pressure with ICP in children with TBIs and obtain their utility values.

Glutamatergic Modulation to Facilitate the Behavioral Treatment of Cocaine Use Disorders

Changes in the communication of glutamate from one brain structure to another are important in the development of therapy for cocaine use disorders. Our preliminary investigations suggest that drugs that affect glutamate exchange may be effective at promoting and maintaining individuals' abstinence from cocaine. The purpose of this randomized, double-blind, controlled trial is to test various glutamate modulators in conjunction with motivational enhancement therapy (MET) and mi...

Assessing Neurocognition After Cerebrovascular Intervention

Decreased blood flow to the brain can cause problems in thinking and cognitive functioning. Carotid disease can result in decreased flow to the brain. We seek to assess this relationship prospectively through performing a battery of neurocognitive assessments, drawing of blood to assess for blood vessel disease, and conduct brain imaging at two points before intervention (2 months and 1 month before stenting) and at two points after intervention (1 month and 2 months after inte...
