To learn more about behavior and everyday functioning after brain injury, and to learn if behavior and functioning gets better with more education about changes after brain injury.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate a 2-3 day treatment probe targeted to improving social gaze behavior in children with fragile X syndrome (FXS). The investigators will use the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to shape appropriate social skills. Importantly, the investigators propose to examine the effects of this treatment probe on brain and behavior.
The purpose of this project is to examine the impact that television food advertisements have on brain responses and eating behavior in children. Food advertisements enhance children's liking and intake of foods that tend to be high in energy content and low in nutritional value. Although several studies have measured the differences in children's food intake after watching advertisements, none have shown the brain mechanisms associated with this change in behavior. In order to...
Evaluation of the impact (on survival and other outcomes) of implementing the Brain Trauma Foundation/National Association of EMS Physicians Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) guidelines in the prehospital EMS systems throughout the state of Arizona.
The purpose of this research study is to collect and store brain tumor tissue samples for future research. The samples will become part of the University of Florida Brain Tumor Tissue Bank/Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research. The goal is to find improved treatments and cures for brain tumors.
This is a single center study at the UC Davis MIND Institute in patients age 3.5-16 years of age with fragile X syndrome (FXS), funded by a National Fragile X Foundation Grant. It is a controlled trial of minocycline, an antibiotic commonly used in children for infection or for treatment of neurodegenerative disorders. We are investigating its use in FXS because it lowers matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9) levels, which are high in FXS, and it also strengthens brain connections ...
The conceptual framework underlying the TEACH Research Program is based on a specific theoretical approach designed to influence adolescent career choice, in this case towards a career in clinical research. The factors responsible for influencing career choice that form the foundation for our investigation are: 1) the importance of role models in career choice; 2) acquisition of knowledge in order to align ambitions; and 3) the participation of students in activities that activ...
One of the most pressing concerns within the VA currently is the provision of interventions that address the cognitive as well as emotional problems faced by Veterans with mild TBI and comorbid conditions. When completed, these studies will inform us whether training core attentional self-regulatory control functions via personally-relevant activities will be effective in improving daily life for Veterans with mild TBI and comorbid conditions. The study design will provide a te...
This project seeks to identify causal neural mechanisms underlying unwanted, repetitive behaviors (compulsions). Using non-invasive brain stimulation coupled with practice in a computer task, we will modulate activity in a target brain region in two directions (up or down) and measure effects on compulsive behaviors and related measures. This work could ultimately lead to the ability to treat compulsions more effectively by targeting the regions of the brain that can help or hi...
Some of the most common and disabling consequences of brain injury are deficits in cognition, such as difficulty with sustained attention, memory, organization, and goal management. The long-term goal of this research program is to develop and test novel neuroscience-based cognitive assessment tools and interventions for improving attentional regulation and related "executive function" brain processes involved in goal-directed behavior.
This research study is studying palbociclib as a possible treatment for recurrent brain metastases. - Pfizer, a pharmaceutical company, is supporting this research study by providing the study drug as well as funding for research activities
This research study will examine the relationship interconnecting medical body health, mental health, and microbes of the digestive tract in persons living with serious mental illnesses,as compared to persons without such disorders. Existing research suggests that interactions between digestive tract microbes and the body may influence brain function circuits, mood, anxiety state, cognition, behavior, and medical physiology.
Autism is a well-recognized neurodevelopmental disorder severely affecting the health of children. While the unclear neurobiological basis of autism and the lack of effective medication, the most commonly used approach for treatment is behavioral intervention. However, the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the intervention therapy remains incompletely understood. The current project aims to explore the impacts of different early behavioral intervention methods on brain p...
The purpose of this research study is to investigate how the brain and motor behavior changes Parkinson's Disease (PD) over time in response to Exenatide. In previous clinical trials, PD patients have experienced symptomatic improvement on Exenatide and literature suggests it may help slow the progression of Parkinson's. Both will be evaluated in this study.
The main objective is to highlight, by functional imaging (MRI) dysfunctional brain regions associated with vulnerability to suicidal behavior.
The development of the brain in females is a result of a combination of factors. During puberty estrogen plays a role in influencing brain development. Cultural and environmental factors also play a role in the development of the brain. Female patients with Turner syndrome lack the ability to produce estrogen due to undeveloped ovaries. Therefore, Turner syndrome is the perfect condition to study how estrogen (or the lack of estrogen) influences a person's behavior and thi...
The objective of this research study is to examine the implementation of and outcomes associated with an evidence-based practice (EBP), specifically Multiple Family Group (MFG) targeting youth disruptive behavior challenges and success, through a scale up intervention study in Uganda, and two pilot studies that will be conducted in Kenya and Ghana
The purpose of this research is to improve our understanding of the effects that taking cholesterol reducing pills have on dietary behavior as well as other health related behaviors
The purpose of this research study is to help determine whether practicing resisting the urge to smoke changes brain function or behavior among smokers.
The purpose of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of three training programs designed to teach persons with traumatic brain injury to recognize emotions. It is hypothesized that the training programs will enhance several aspects of emotion recognition in persons with TBI. Furthermore, it is expected that these effects will be maintained over time, and will positively influence participants' social behavior and integration.
Previous research involving families, twins, and adoption all support the idea that there is a substantial heritable aspect to personality. The goal of this research study is to determine how genetics influence heritable personality traits. The work will focus on how genetics affect the chemical messengers which brain cells use to communicate with each other (neurotransmitters). The study involves collecting personality data and DNA samples from related individuals, pr...
The purpose of this study is to use brain imaging technology to examine the effect of the hormone hydrocortisone on the brain's response to various facial expressions. Glucocorticoids can influence emotional behavior and cognition; when given long-term, the hormones may lead to mania or depression. One way glucocorticoids may influence emotional behavior is by affecting the activity of certain parts of the brain that participate in emotional processing. Brain imaging studies i...
