The purpose of this study is to learn more about how patients with Tourette Syndrome deal with sensory stimuli in their environment such as bright lights, loud noises, physical sensations such as shirt tags, etcetera. We will compare responses of patients with Tourette Syndrome to those without Tourette Syndrome. The study aims to better characterize sensory processing abnormalities by sensory modality: The investigators will use a measuring tool based on Dunn's 1997 model of ...
Around 69-95% of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder are known to have sensory processing abnormalities .Tackling these problems would help in better quality of life, both for the parents and the children. Sensory integration therapy, an individualized clinic based therapy have been shown to have a positive effect on those children with sensory abnormalities. Hence the investigators are doing this study , to primarily look into the efficacy and feasibility of home based s...
The objective of this intervention is to evaluate the effect of sensory imagination (i.e., imagining the sensory properties of an object) on the choice of food portion size in school-aged children. Previous research showed that it may help children to choose smaller portion size (Cornil and Chandon, 2015). We would like to assess whether this effect can be reproduced with two types of food (one with a high energy-density and one with a low energy-density), and in older children...

A common feature of ASD is over or under sensitivity to the environment and difficulty putting sensory information together in an orderly way, referred to here as sensory issues. Building on previous work, this study will test the efficacy of Sensory Integration Therapy (SIT), a non-invasive intervention to improve functional skills in children with ASD, in comparison to commonly applied ABA behavioral treatments, in the treatment of ASD symptoms. A total of 180 children wit...
The goal of this clinical research study is to improve understanding of the sensory qualities of patients who have pain caused by cancer therapy. This information will add to the understanding of what causes this pain and may lead to better management of the pain. The specific goal is to define the sensory capacity of patients in their area of pain as a consequence of cancer therapy compared to another body area without pain.
Over the past 10 years, there have been substantial improvements in breast reconstruction by plastic surgeons, and much has been achieved in aesthetic restoration after mastectomy. Advances in both microsurgery and implants have allowed for a wider variety of surgical methods, and procedural skills that minimize donor site complications have been developed. With such satisfactory aesthetic results, interest has recently increased not only in breast reconstruction but also in s...
The aim of this research will be to investigate in stroke patients whether upper limb motor function can be maximized in response to sensory stimulation by comparing protocols for the application of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) in the cortical region of S1 and Sensory Therapy in the upper limb paretic. Patients will be randomly and randomly allocated into four groups, Group 1 (G1) composed of individuals who will receive the protocol for the application of rTMS in t...
This single-center, cross-sectional survey and sensory examination is conducted to determine the prevalence, sensory characteristics and risk factors of PPSP in patients who underwent cystectomy at Washington University/Barnes-Jewish Hospital between 2009 and 2015. Based on data from other lower abdominal surgeries, the investigators hypothesize that 10-15% of patients undergoing cystectomy will develop PPSP.
The overall aim of this study is to investigate if sensory re-learning in combination with task-specific training is more effective than task-specific training alone to improve sensory function of the hand, dexterity, the ability to use the hand in daily activities, perceived participation and life satisfaction.
Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) is a novel investigative technique used in other pain conditions to evaluate patterns of chronic pain, and in this study will be used to elucidate pain patterns in patients with Chronic Pancreatitis (CP). QST uses a specific series of standardized stimulations to map the pain system. QST has the potential to change and improve the treatment paradigm for patients with CP and may eventually be able to predict response to invasive CP therapies.
The sensory recovery of the breast remains an undervalued aspect of breast reconstruction and surgical reinnervation is not regarded as a priority by most reconstructive surgeons. A prospective study was conducted of all patients who underwent either innervated or non-innervated DIEP flap breast reconstruction in Maastricht University Medical Center and returned for follow-up between September 2015 and July 2017. Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments were used for sensory testing of t...
The study aims investigate sensory processing disorders and school readiness in pre-school preterm children and the relationship between sensory impairment and school readiness
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of nicotinic alpha-7 MEM 3454 on P50 sensory gating in patients with Schizophrenia. The hypothesis is that MEM 3454 will normalize the P50 ratio. Data produced in this study will provide useful information regarding the value of P50 as an efficacy biomarker, and provide evidence for the optimal dosing of MEM 3454 for additional P50 studies.
The purpose of this study is to assess and validate the clinical criteria of sensitization ("Convergences PP criteria") selected by the expert consensus with neurophysiological sensory testing.
The purpose of this large comparative effectiveness study led by Richard J. Barohn, MD, of the University of Kansas Medical Center, is to learn about the safety and effectiveness of nortriptyline, duloxetine, pregabalin and mexiletine in treating cryptogenic sensory polyneuropathy (CSPN).
Sensory neuronopathies affect sensory neuron in the posterior spinal ganglion. They are responsible for pain, balance disorder (ataxia) and the use of hands. They depend on multiple etiologies. In a retrospective study, the investigators showed that the anti-FGFR3 antibody is a diagnostic marker of a subset of sensory neuronopathies. The investigators believe that other antibodies can be discovered in patients who remain seronegative changing. However, the study is retro...
Few studies have used quantitative sensory tests to study the effect of chronic opioid treatment on sensation. The investigators will test chronic pain patients who are on different MEDDs, normal volunteers, and patients undergoing an opioid taper. This will be the first study to perform sensory testing on patients while undergoing an opioid taper on an outpatient basis.
Sixty-two preterm infants born less than or equal to 32 weeks gestation will be put into either the sensory-based intervention (experiment) group or traditional care (control) group. Consecutive admissions at St. Louis Children's Hospital (SLCH) who are hospitalized in a private NICU room will be recruited. The parents of infants in the sensory-based intervention group will be educated and supported by trained therapists to give different positive sensory experiences to their i...
Following the retrospective study ont he effectiveness of the microdose method of IT morphine therapy, the investigators are interested in measuring the sensory changes at 4 time points during the microdose method. The microdose method involves weaning the patient off oral opioids and maintaining an opioid-free period prior to initiating a very low opioid dose in IT therapy. The microdose method is a standard of care. The study involves measuring sensory changes to hot, cold, a...
Assessment of the upper sensory block level during neuraxial analgesia for labor and delivery is an essential component of clinical management and patient safety. A variety of methods have been used for testing the sensory block such as cold, light touch, sharp touch or prick and transcutaneous electrical stimulation. In addition to the diversity of methods, the endpoints used by investigators have also been variable, considering total or partial responses as endpoints. Not sur...
The purpose of this study is (1) to determine if patient triggered sensory(auditory, visual and tactile) cues can help treat freezing of gait in Parkinson's disease, and (2) to assess if unexpected (randomized) cues are more effective than anticipated ones.
The Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) approach seeks to address the neurobiological mechanisms of sensory symptoms in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) by investigating dimensional components of behavior that more closely align with brain circuitry. This project focuses on the dimensional symptom of sensory phenomena (SP), which are uncomfortable or aversive sensory experiences that drive repetitive behaviors in OCD, including "not just right" sensations, physical...
The primary aim of this study is to determine whether spatiotemporal characteristics of multisensory evoked potentials can be used as a marker of consciousness (awareness) under anesthesia. The secondary aim is to characterize changes in the characteristics of evoked potentials under anesthesia in both single sensory modality (visual, auditory) and across sensory modalities.
Sensitive skin is a common problem, with 50% of women and 30% of men in Europe feel they have sensitive skin. The Quantitative sensory testing (QST) is a physico-psychic method that uses gradients stimuli of different modalities to measure a subjective somatosensory response. This allows to characterize sensory dysfunction by assessing the participation of small and large nerve fibers. The aim of this project is to characterize the presence or absence of a neurological ...
