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...

Exceptional Experiences (EE), Salience & Dopaminergic Neurotransmission

The dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia implies that alterations in the dopamine system cause functional abnormalities in the brain that may converge to aberrant salience attribution and eventually lead to psychosis. Indeed, widespread brain disconnectivity across the psychotic spectrum has been revealed by resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI). However, the dopaminergic involvement in intrinsic functional connectivity (iFC) and its putative relationshi...

Improvisational Movement for People With Memory Loss and Their Caregivers

Neuropsychiatric Factors

It is estimated that approximately 20-25% of diabetic patients will have at least one trophic disorder during their period. The appearance of a trophic disorder in a diabetic patient is a serious complication, indicating that diabetes is often complicated. The consequences are serious for the patient with an impairment of his quality of life, but also for society with a high cost in terms of health care costs. It should also be noted that diabetes remains the main cause of non...

Central Executive Training (CET) for ADHD

The goal of the current project is to assess the efficacy of Central Executive Training (CET) for youth with ADHD. CET is a new, computerized training intervention that targets specific components of the working memory system. Two versions of CET were developed as part of our R34, each targeting a different combinations of executive functions. The final CET protocol reflects the contributions and feedback of a diverse group of caregivers, children with ADHD, and recognized expe...

The Effect of Intranasal Insulin Administration on Cognitive Function After Cardiac Surgery.

Decline in cognitive function after surgery occurs most commonly in older patients and patients undergoing major surgeries, such as heart surgery. Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction (POCD) may last a prolonged period of time while Postoperative Delirium (POD) is a more acute disturbance in attention, awareness and cognition. The cause of POCD and POD are not fully understood, however some of the pathophysiology of POCD is similar to that of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Ins...

Pairing Word Retrieval and Physical Endurance Tasks to Treat Anomia in People With Aphasia

Many individuals have difficulty with word retrieval, also called anomia, following cerebrovascular accident (CVA). These difficulties impede effective communication in everyday conversations and can negatively impact the resumption of pre-injury activities. Even after rehabilitation specifically targeting these areas, many individuals report persistent difficulties with anomia. Additionally, most individuals report that these difficulties worsen when distracted, fatigued, or w...
