The aim of the study is to investigate whether intensive speech-language therapy (SLT) combined with anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) leads to better communication performance than SLT combined with placebo stimulation (using sham-tDCS).
Intensive therapy for aphasia has been demonstrated to improve language functioning after stroke or other neurological injury. However, recovery is generally not complete and new therapies are needed to improve outcomes. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) has been shown to improve outcomes with motor therapy after stroke. This study will examine the feasibility of using tDCS with intensive language therapy as a way of enhancing language outcomes in aphasia
This study proposes to use transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in patients with chronic strokes and aphasia in order to characterize and enhance the mechanisms of language recovery following injury. Prior to enrollment subjects will undergo six "site-finding' sessions involving various placements of positively charged (anodal), negatively charged (cathodal), and sham stimulation over the damaged and intact hemispheres of the brain, along with standard tests of langua...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) influences lexical access and language production. The experimental paradigm will assess the impact of prefrontal stimulation by tDCS versus sham tDCS (S-tDCS) over the PFC of patients with chronic post-stroke aphasia during three language production tasks and a nonverbal executive functions task.
Aphasia is an acquired (typically left-hemisphere) multi-modality disturbance of language that impacts around 2 million people in the USA. Aphasia impacts language production and comprehension as well as reading and writing. The ramifications of aphasia extend beyond language impairment to negatively impacting a person's social, vocational, and recreational activities. Currently, the most effective way to treat aphasia is with speech-language therapy (SLT). However, even if SLT...
This study proposes to use transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a technique by which a very small electrical current (2 mA) is applied to the scalp, along side speech therapy in patients with subacute stroke and aphasia in order to enhance language recovery. Aphasic patients in an inpatient neurorehabilitation facility who have experienced a stroke between one week and three months prior to enrollment will be invited to participate. Participants will receive either r...
The aim of this study is to investigate whether a tDCS-accompanied intensive naming therapy leads to a performance improvement in patients with chronic aphasia induced by a moderate TBI
Aphasia is a language impairment caused by brain injury such as stroke that affects the ability to understand and express language, read and write due to damage in the language regions of the brain. Non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) techniques like transcranial direct-current stimulation (tDCS) have been found to improve aphasia treatment effects in post stroke patient populations such as improved naming abilities. However, the effect of tDCS on more functional, higher lev...
This study aims to determine whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) paired with speech-language therapy is more beneficial than speech-language therapy alone in acute and chronic post-stroke aphasia.
The aim of the current research is to evaluate the efficacy of a combination of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to improve cognitive function in individuals with anxiety, depression and/or cognitive complaints.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of 10 sessions of anodal transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS - 1 mA) applied to left Cortex DorsoLateral PreFrontal (CDLPF) of Alzheimer's or Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) patients compared to the application of a placebo tDCS (sham procedure) on cognitive functions, which are evaluated at short term (1 week post-treatment) and mild term (3 weeks post-treatment). After unblinding, patients who received placebo t...
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)is a non invasive technique which uses a very weak current to change excitability in targeted regions of the brain. Early studies suggest that it has antidepressant properties. This study will test the safety and efficacy of tDCS as a treatment for depression.
This study will evaluate the possible therapeutic effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) in drug-naïve obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) patients, and the underlying neural mechanism by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI),transcranial magnetic stimulation and electroencephalography (TMS-EEG).
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a technique of noninvasive cortical stimulation allowing significant modification of brain function used. Clinical application of this technique could be helpful for pain, Parkinson's disease, dystonia, cerebral palsy and dementia etc. And tDCS is safe with only mild, transient adverse effects. But there is few studies focused to postoperative states. The aim of this project is to reveal the effect of tDCS for postoperative pai...
The purpose of this study is to investigate transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) as a cognitive enhancer for patients with Alzheimer disease. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a neuromodulation technique, that are applied to the brain by using two electrodes. These electrodes are placed on the scalp. The current is low intensity, usually 1-2 mA. tDCS may affect cognitive functions by increasing cortical excitability. tDCS is regarded as a safe treatme...
This is a 4 week therapeutic pilot study with a 4 week follow-up period involving inpatients with treatment resistant DSM-IV schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder diagnosis. Each eligible subject will receive either 20 minutes of active tDCS (transcranial direct-current stimulation) or sham stimulation twice a day on 5 consecutive weekdays for 4 weeks with a 4 week follow-up period.
The purpose this study is to test the utility of pairing external neuromodulation with behavioral language treatment to boost therapy outcomes and to investigate the mechanisms associated with recovery. Because all PWA have word retrieval deficits, this project will test if greater language gains can be achieved by supplementing anomia intervention with excitatory brain stimulation to the left hemisphere and will evaluate associated functional brain changes to aid the optimizat...
