Auditory mismatch negativity deficit is a robust neurophysiological biomarker of schizophrenia. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is a neuromodulation method and can be used to modulate excitability of specific brain cortical region. We hypothesize that MMN deficit of schizophrenia is related to inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) hypofunction, and this deficit can be improved by using rTMS to enhance IFG function. It is a randomized, double-blinded, sham-controlled...
This study compares the health effects of dermal and inhalational exposure to thirdhand cigarette smoke to those of inhalational exposure to secondhand cigarette smoke in healthy, adult nonsmokers. Our hypothesis is that dermal exposure increases exposure to the tobacco specific carcinogen, NNK and may affect both endothelial function and epidermal integrity.
Prevalence of depression shows great heterogeneity in patients with psoriasis. This could be explained by the psychometric properties of the questionnaires assessing depressive symptoms: these tests have not been developed in a context of dermatosis. The complaints and symptoms associated with psoriasis can be misidentified by questionnaires as a manifestation of depressive symptomatology and may overestimate depressive symptoms. In other diseases such as asthma and rheumatoid...
This study is a prospective, randomized, single-blinded, cross-over trial to investigate the efficacy of low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy in the treatment of chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). We will enroll 60 subjects with Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (CPSI) > 15. 30 subjects receive ESWT (LM-IASO, Litemed Co., Taiwan) for 6 courses in 3 weeks (0.05mJ/mm2, 3000 pulses) and 30 subjects receive Sham therapy for 3 weeks (the machine turning on but the energy...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a major cause of disability and mortality worldwide. This disease progressively leads to dyspnea and exercise capacity impairment. Pulmonary rehabilitation teaches chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients to cope effectively with the systemic effects of the disease and improves exercise capacity, dyspnea and quality of life in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. However, the best training modality remains unknown. ...
Spasticity (tightening, spasming and/or contractions of muscles) is a commonly encountered consequence of injuries to the central nervous system. Spasticity has an adverse effect on quality of life and function of patients with spinal cord injuries, stroke and cerebral palsy. Conventional management consists of medication, injections of botulinum toxin and occasionally extensive surgical interventions. Several studies have examined the use of repetitive magnetic stimulation of ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility, safety, and preliminary efficacy of a two-week self Cranial Electrical Stimulation(CES) on pain in older adults with knee osteoarthritis(OA)
The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of self-administered transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in older adults with knee osteoarthritis (OA)
The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of thoracic spine manipulation on vestibule pain as determined by sensory testing (q-tip and pressure algometry) in a group of women with provoked vestibulodynia (PVD). The objective is to compare the immediate effect of manipulation and sham manipulation on the results of sensory testing of the external vulva, or vestibule.
This study is to examine the efficacy of tDCS to improving walking in people with Multiple Sclerosis (PwMS). Our study compromises 1 group of subjects with MS which will attend the lab for three sessions. In the first session, subjects will be consented, complete the Patient Determined Disease Steps (PDDS), the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS), and maximal voluntary contractions (MVCs) of the right and left knee extensors and flexors to determine the more-affected leg. The s...
There is a great need for effective treatments and prevention therapies that can provide symptomatic and disease modifying benefits for those at risk for Alzheimer's disease. The proposed multi-site collaborative project brings together research teams at the University of Florida (UF) and University of Arizona (UA) to test a novel, relatively low cost, low risk, and potentially high impact therapeutic intervention in older adults who are at increased risk for Alzheimer's diseas...
A double-blind crossover randomized controlled trial to investigate the effects of the AVACEN device on fasting blood glucose. The AVACEN device creates negative pressure around the hand while heating the palm. Two sham devices, one providing heat but no vacuum and one providing neither heat nor vacuum were also used. Each subject was tested while using each of these three devices on separate visits. Subjects arrived in the morning following an overnight fast. Fasting blood glu...
There are a series of symptoms such as ischemic stroke、transient ischemic attack 、hemorrhagic stroke、headache 、seizure and so on in moyamoya disease( MMD) patients .Nowadays, revascularization is the only effective way for ischemic MMD and there is no effective conservative treatment for MMD. This study was to explore the safety and efficacy of remote ischemic conditioning(RIC ) on adult MMD patients.
Treatment resistant depression (TRD) is a major global health concern, and there is a crucial need to develop novel effective treatments. The medial forebrain bundle (MFB) is a recently described DBS target, with reported rapid onset of antidepressant effects. A recent small randomized trial reported a 100% response rate. Herein, we will conduct a sham-controlled randomized trial of DBS to the MFB for TRD.
Working memory is a limited capacity cognitive system in which information is held temporarily in order to make it available for processing. The amount of information that can be held in mind varies considerably from person to person and changes across the lifespan (Conway, Jarrold, Kane, Miyake, & Towse, 2008). Working memory is frequently affected following brain injury. As working memory is important for cognitive skills such as problem solving, planning and active listenin...
Incidental learning happens without any deliberate intention to memorize. Experimental manipulations of incidental learning typically involves prompting individuals to solve a categorical decision task, followed by an unexpected free recall of the presented stimuli. According to the level of processing framework, deep encoding of the stimuli will lead to a stronger memory trace and thus, better recall. Deep encoding means that individuals focus on the meaning of stimuli rather ...
The aim of this study is to understand how early intervention could impact reinnervation of the recurrent laryngeal nerve (which innervates the vocal cord), recovery of mobility of the paralyzed vocal cord and / or vocal recovery in the case of unilateral vocal fold paralysis. To achieve this goal we must therefore carry out a complete outcomes assessment of different intervention methods (voice therapy and injection laryngoplasty), which are offered to UVFP (unilateral vocal f...
Relatively high level athletes will undergo 2 randomized, cross-over counterbalanced sessions of bi-anodal tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) or sham tDCS The primary outcome is a 3D evaluation coupled with EMG (Electromyography) of their primary lower limb muscles after each session
Healthy recreational athletes will undergo a session of anodal tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) or sham tDCS. The primary outcome is an isokinetic evaluation of their hamstrings' and quadriceps' strength before and after each session
The overall goal of the proposed project is to improve the treatment of individuals with Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). We will conduct a pilot feasibility trial of Approach Bias Modification (AABM) training of heavy-drinking non-treatment seeking individuals with AUD. We will measure feasibility with respect to recruitment, retention and tolerability of AABM training and the Alcohol Drinking Paradigm (ADP). We will also assess changes in alcohol craving and alcohol consumption du...

The objective of the current study is to investigate the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on self-reported negative affect, cerebellar brain activation and alcohol use outcomes in alcohol use disorder (AUD).
To date, several studies have focused on the use of transcranial direct current stimulation(tDCS) in patients with impaired consciousness.However,its therapeutic effects have been variously documented.So,in this study ,investigators explore the effects of tDCS.
The subject will be administered a treatment at a sham location and then be asked if he/she believes it is the active treatment, sham treatment, or does not know. A clinical-grade nerve conduction assessment system will be used both to provide electrical stimulation at four locations on the hand/arm and to record ulnar responses at the fingers. The subject will self-administer two treatment sessions at two active treatment sites.
