Whether you are healthy or have a medical condition, there are opportunities to participate in a research study. Health research ranges from simple questionnaires or screening tests, to clinical trials of a new drug or device.
This study will be a randomized controlled trial to determine the efficacy of the Otago Exercise Program (OEP) on falls among seniors with a history of falls.
To test our predictions concerning differences between men and women in their abilities to be flexible in looking at familiar things in new ways, stay focused, and resist their initial response to give a wiser, more considered response instead—and in how mild stress (concern to perform well) affe
The purpose of this study is to compare abdominal weight gain and fat distribution to changes in brain morphology in people taking antipsychotic medications.
This trial will compare a novel form of rTMS, intermittent Theta Burst Stimulation to the standard conventional high frequency left sided stimulation protocol. The Left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex will be the site of stimulation in both treatment conditions.
Parkinson's disease results from the loss of dopamine producing brain cells; however, the mechanism that start and continue this loss are still largerly unknkown. Recent research has suggested a protein called tau may contribute to the development and progression of Parksinon's disease.
Significant changes in brain morphology are observed in people with first-episode psychosis. Studies have shown that total brain volume and particular brain structures are decreased in people with psychosis disorders.
The purpose of this study is to test whether an investigational drug called solanezumab can slow the progression of memory problems associated with brain amyloid (protein that forms plaques in the brains of people with Alzheimer Disease [AD]).
The investigators are investigating the effects of traffic-related diesel exhaust on lung function and the immune system in those at risk for COPD. The individual will be exposed to either filtered air (FA) or carefully controlled levels of diesel exhaust (DE) in our exposure chamber.
The primary purpose of the protocol is to evaluate whether Trientine Hydrochloride, a copper chelator which is an agent that binds with and removes copper, will be effective in minimizing macular edema after cataract surgery in individuals with type 2 diabetes.
We aim to examine the relationship bewteen cognitive function and sleep quality as a function of aging; and to determine whether sleep disruptions differ across individuals with mild cognitivie impairment, depending on stroke-status (i.e., chronic stroke survivors versus non-stroke).
