This study will use light scattering spectroscopy (LSS) to analyze brain tissue removed from patients during brain surgery to determine if this new technology can be used to differentiate between normal and cancerous cells. LSS focuses light on cells or tissues, and the way that light is reflected back from the tissues provides information about the size of cells and the density of the cell nuclei (the part of the cell that contains the genes). Patients between 18 and 7...
Transcranial Light Therapy involves non-invasive and invisible beams of light that increase energy metabolism in the brain. Transcranial light therapy has been found to promote brain metabolism which may help people with anxiety. The research team proposes a novel approach to treating anxiety by using transcranial light therapy.
The overall objective is to evaluate the effect of exposure to Plasmodium (P.) falciparum erythrocytic stage antigens during different periods of infancy on the development of naturally acquired immunity (NAI). Hypothesis: Exposure to P. falciparum prior to 5 months of age does not result in the development of NAI, while exposure to P. falciparum after 5 months of age leads to the development of NAI. The risks of clinical malaria and anaemia during the second year of life ...
This study is designed to investigate whether light therapy may be an effective treatment for some people with epilepsy. Light treatment is already an established treatment for depression. The chemical systems in the brain that are disrupted when someone becomes depressed, overlap with some of those that can be affected during some epileptic seizures. The investigators have designed this study to see whether light therapy may also lead to a decrease in seizures in people who ha...
Several studies in the past suggest that individuals who have or had anorexia nervosa may have alterations in brain serotonin. Serotonin seems to play an important role in regulating anxiety, mood, and other symptoms found in anorexia nervosa. We will be using a technology called Positron Emission Tomography (PET), which is a method used to take pictures of the body, in this case, the brain. Study participants will undergo two baseline PET scans on the first day of the study. T...
This 12-week randomized controlled trial involves two intervention groups (i.e., single-player game group, competition game group) and one control group (i.e., conventional checkerboard group). The main objective of this study is to examine the effects of game-based training on patient motivation, exercise duration, and functional outcomes in comparison with the control group.
In this randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled project, the investigators would like to assess the effect of a specific light, as compared to placebo light, on wakefulness (circadian rhythms, homeostasy, sleep-wake cycle), awareness (perceptual and self consciousness), cognition (attention, memory) and underlying brain activity (electrophysiology and neuroimaging)
Cognitive impairment (such as memory problems) due to cancer and its treatment can interfere with quality of life and can linger long after treatment has ended, yet research examining cognitive rehabilitation approaches has produced limited clinical benefit. The proposed study will provide information about systematic light exposure for the treatment of cognitive impairment in hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) survivors and will investigate how it works. This study woul...
While previous atherosclerosis-related studies have focused mainly on the atherogenicity of lipids, the proposed study aims to investigate the effects of other dietary factors, i.e. monosaccharides, disaccharides, amino acids, or artificial sweeteners, on the atherogenicity of serum or macrophages. Findings from the current proposed study may shed light on yet unknown mechanisms by which the above dietary factors could affect atherosclerosis development and CVD risk and hence c...
Electrical activity in the brain known as "gamma" brainwaves help connect and process information throughout the brain. These gamma waves are diminished in Alzheimer's disease. New research in Alzheimer's disease mouse models shows that exposure to light flickering at the rate of 40 flashes per second or 40Hz increased gamma brainwaves and led to clearing of beta amyloid plaques in the brain, a key abnormality in Alzheimer's disease. This project will test the ability of a nove...
Presently, the role of either genetic factors or biological sex in the development of postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) is unknown. There is a critical need to determine which individuals are at high-risk for developing POCD by virtue of biological sex or genetic predisposition. The knowledge gained in the described research has the potential to shed light on mechanistic pathways, a necessary next step in order to ultimately identify therapeutic strategies.
The patients were randomly separated into three groups. Group M (n=35) applied CD player and Group S (n=35) received the independent anesthesiologist placed earplugs into the patients' ears. Group N (n=35) exposed to the ambient operating room noise.
The primary purpose of this study is to investigate brain whether ADHD represents a disruption or a delay of brain development. Children and adolescents both with and without ADHD are asked to participate in several MRI sessions, two years apart. This will allow us to chart brain development over time, both in typical development and ADHD, and therefore to address whether ADHD represents a disruption or a delay of typical brain development.
This study aims to assess differences in monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) distribution in the brain between seasonal affective disorder patients and healthy controls using positron emission tomography. In addition the investigators aim to demonstrate the impact of light therapy on MAO-A distribution.
The purpose of this study is to investigate brain development in autism by longitudinally assessing children with autism, as well as typically developing controls, using advanced MR techniques. We will use longitudinal diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) measures to investigate the protracted development of long-range white matter fibers in autism. In addition, we will investigate the effect of autism risk genes on brain development.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether red light therapy using LED 650nm red light for body contouring of the waist, hips and thighs is as effective as red light therapy using Laser 635nm red light.
The study will correlate the volumes of the brain obtained from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans done at term gestation for infants born prematurely who weighed less than 1000 grams at birth with their corresponding development at 18 months corrected age.
A study of the complex genetics of brain development will be undertaken with an emphasis on those genes that cause the most common structural brain anomaly in humans called holoprosencephaly (HPE). This malformation of the brain can result from either environmental or genetic causes, and it is the aim of these investigations to determine the genes responsible for both normal and abnormal brain development through the study of patients with this disorder. Mutations in one such...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of daily morning exposure to colored light in patients receiving acute inpatient rehabilitation services for stroke, traumatic brain injury, or non-traumatic brain injury with sleep disturbances such as poor nighttime sleep and/or excessive daytime sleepiness.In a two-arm randomized placebo-controlled study with pre-exposure and post-exposure assessments, we are comparing the effects of daily morning exposure to eit...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether red light therapy using LED 635nm red light for body contouring of the waist, hips and thighs is as effective as red light therapy using Laser 635nm red light.
Background: Erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP) is characterized by development of painful skin symptoms upon exposure to visible light dye to accumulation of the photoactive substance protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) in the skin.This study aimed to quantify the actual light exposure of patients with EPP during everyday life. We further aimed to establish the associations between symptoms and light exposure, use of protective clothes, and erythrocyte PpIX concentration.
Red light laser therapy using 635nm red light laser technology has previously been shown to cause lipolysis in subcutaneous fat as a non-surgical method to promote weight loss and body contouring. This study hypothesizes that red LED light therapy using 650nm red light LED (light emitting diode) technology produces similar results to the laser device (red LASER 635nm) when preformed using a specified treatment protocol.
RATIONALE: Photodynamic therapy uses a drug, such as porfimer sodium, that becomes active when it is exposed to a certain kind of light. When the drug is active, tumor cells are killed. Giving photodynamic therapy after surgery may kill any remaining tumor cells. PURPOSE: This randomized clinical trial is studying two different light doses of photodynamic therapy using porfimer sodium to compare how well they work in treating patients who are undergoing surgery for recurrent m...
The aim is to evoke romantic jealousy between couples and investigate whether oxytocin has effect on it.
Dr. Elliott Sherr and his collaborators at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) are studying the genetic causes of disorders of cognition and epilepsy, in particular disorders of brain development that affect the corpus callosum, such as Aicardi syndrome, as well as two additional brain malformations, polymicrogyria and Dandy-Walker malformation. The goal of the investigators' research is to use a better understanding of the underlying genetic causes as a foundation t...
