Attentional control, or individuals' ability to choose which stimuli in the environment they attend to and which they ignore, declines with older age. Studies from the past two decades suggest that mindfulness meditative practice, such as a standardized mindfulness based stress reduction programs, may increase the efficiency of attention networks.To date, the majority of studies that have related mindfulness meditation practice to attentional control have been based on retrospe...
The investigators are interested in how attentional filter training/ distractor inhibition training could influence cognitive functions like working memory, executive control, problem solving, decision making and attentional control.
The study will aim to determine normal daily variation of the individual hydration level in longitudinal study on elderly in assisted living facility and assess a range of variation of individual hydration baselines for elderly in a normal physiologically hydrated state.
Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChE-I) comprise a class of drugs used to treat Alzheimer's disease (AD), but controversy about their usefulness remains. Modest response rates of treated versus placebo groups, small effect sizes with respect to efficacy, drug costs, and clinical relevance of the effects are problematic. Standard efficacy measures of efficacy are not sufficiently sensitive, and trying to assess cognitive change after 4-6 months of therapy confounds the drug eff...
The purpose of this study is to termine if a different attentional focus would alter the motor control in cervical muscles during the cranio-cervical test.
Randomized, placebo-controlled trial of 9 sessions of computerized attentional bias training on attentional bias and on symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.
This study is designed to investigate effects on attentional performance and motoric activity of the dietary supplement 100 mg microencapsulated glycine (Bidicin® from Biotiki®) compared to placebo after treatment with t.i.d. sublingual doses over 3 weeks each. The primary objective of the study is to determine the effects on attentional performance and motoric activity of 100 mg microencapsulated Glycine (Bidicin® from Biotiki® ) compared to placebo after treatment with t...
The purpose of this study is to compare Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT) for Adolescent Drug Abusers to treatment as usual (TAU).
The stratum corneum (SC) is the superficial layer of the epidermis situated at the interface between the body and its outside environment. Its strategic position confers it a crucial role of protection against aggressions. After disruption, the kinetic of cutaneous barrier is slower in elderly comparatively to young subjects. The purpose of this study is to investigate, by characterizing molecular events, the effectiveness of ER4017 (Hydroxypropyltetrahydropyrantriol) to resto...
Chronic musculoskeletal pain is a complex medical condition associated with significant distress, disability, and reduction in quality of life. Research has shown that patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain demonstrate attentional biases towards pain-related information. The purpose of this study is to determine whether internet-delivered attentional bias modification, which aims to implicitly train attention away from pain-related information, has beneficial effect...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of different types of cognitive training on attention in adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) using mobile software on personal mobile devices.
This study is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group trial of atomoxetine (1.8 mg/kg) for the management of chemotherapy-related acquired attentional disorders in children who have survived Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. Atomoxetine will produce a favorable impact on ADHD symptoms in children with chemo-related acquired attentional disorders.
Cognitive disorders are a major problem in patients with epilepsy. One hypothesis is that the anomalies EEGs (AIC) may be responsible for short periods of attentional fluctuations causing a reduction of intellectual efficiency of patients. In this project, we propose to evaluate the impact of AIC on cognitive performance, specifically on attentional performance (central parameter of cognitive functioning) through the use of a computerized cognitive test (called STABILO, detaile...
The purpose of this study is to test an innovative combination of direct-attention training and metacognitive training in the treatment of attention impairments in Veterans with moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) who report experiencing attentional problems. Enrolled participants will be randomized to receive either the direct-attention training or metacognitive training first and then will be crossed over to receive the opposite intervention. The study will consis...
Attentional symptoms characterize both ADHD and other mental conditions in children. The diagnosis is based on clinical psychiatric evaluation. With the expanding knowledge regarding the neurobiological basis in ADHD we have learned that attention is not a general property of the whole brain, but involves several coordinated networks. This knowledge promoted us to the stage in which we can recognize different types of attention domains. Our computerized battery can sep...

Study 2: active recording (instruction of attentional control given to the subject). Study 3: ...
The STRATOB study is a two-arm randomized controlled clinical trial (RCT). The aims of this study are to compare the effectiveness of the BST (Brief Strategic Therapy) with the gold standard CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) in a inpatient and telephone-based outpatient program in a sample of obese people with BED (Binge Eating Disorder) seeking treatment for weight reduction.
The identification and characterization of individuals who vary in their response to exercise-induced weight loss is important. Weight loss in response to exercise is variable and it remains unknown who will succeed, why, and more importantly how to improve weight loss efficacy. This study will examine changes in behavioural, metabolic, physiological and biochemical variables in response to a 12 week supervised exercise programme and evaluate their association with weigh...
to examine if a natural daytime variation in progesterone levels may explain parts of the inconsistent findings from studies reporting divergent results concerning this matter and will be carried out by several blood samples from the same patient during the day of ovulation triggering.
The Social ABCs is an evidence-based, developmentally informed, caregiver-mediated behavioural intervention for toddlers with suspected or confirmed Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is based on principles of Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT, grounded in Applied Behaviour Analysis), and responsive parenting. The two key targets of this program are functional verbal communication and positive caregiver-child affect sharing. This intervention takes place in the context of play an...
Threat-related attentional biases have been identified as a possible precursor to the onset and maintenance of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As a result, protocols such as Attention Bias Modification (ABM) have been developed and utilized to treat these attentional biases in adults diagnosed with PTSD. However, to-date, ABM protocols have not been examined for use specifically among victims of sexual assaults. Participants are 20 undergraduate women enrolled in a Midwes...
Theoretical models of chronic pain hypothesize a privileged treatment of pain-related information that would be the basis of avoidance behaviors in chronic pain. This privileged treatment, also called attentional bias, has been found experimentally in chronic pain. Meta-analyses confirmed that but leaded the question of the difference found between bias in period of attention orientation and bias in period of maintained attention. One of the hypotheses is to consider one or mor...
In this study, it was examined whether or not combined attentional and interpretational bias modifications with university students who display social anxiety symptoms may lead to a decrease in social anxiety-related complaints. The study was conducted with 84 participants who were university students displaying social anxiety symptoms. The participants were randomly assigned into two conditions; cognitive bias modification group (E) and placebo-control group (C). Participants ...
