Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery for Movement Disorders
Recruiting
Background: - Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an approved surgery for certain movement disorders, like Parkinson's disease, that do not respond well to other treatments. DBS uses a battery-powered device called a neurostimulator (like a pacemaker) that is placed under the skin in the chest. It is used to stimulate the areas of the brain that affect movement. Stimulating these areas helps to block the nerve signals that cause abnormal movements. Researchers also want to record the brain function... Read More

Patterned Multichannel Vibrotactile Stimulation for the Longitudinal Treatment of Moderate Stage Parkinson's Disease
Recruiting
The purpose of the present research is to examine the effectiveness of a non-invasive, vibrotactile stimulation protocol, known as coordinated reset (CR), for the alleviation of motor symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). PD patients exhibit rigidity, slowness (bradykinesia) and poverty (akinesia) of movement as well as other symptoms. Treatment for PD is either pharmacological (first line) or invasive deep brain stimulation. The non-invasive, vibrotactile stimulation approach uses... Read More

PET Scanning in Parkinson s Disease
Recruiting
This is an in vivo positron emission tomography (PET) study of regional cerebral dopamine and blood flow in normal volunteers, persons with Parkinson s disease (both familial and sporadic), and those with schizophrenia spectrum disorders. The latter also sign consent for NIH approved protocol 89-M-0160, "Inpatient Evaluation of Neuropsychiatric Patients," PI: Daniel Eisenberg, M.D. Using PET with 6-[F-18] Fluoro-L-dopa (FDOPA) and (15)0-H2O in a single scan session, both presynaptic dopaminergic...

Ketamine for the Treatment of Depression in Parkinson's Disease
Recruiting
The main purpose of this study is to examine the efficacy and safety of a repeated dosing ketamine infusion paradigm compared to placebo in individuals with PD. A subset of participants in each arm will undergo baseline and post-treatment PET and fMRI scans, to examine whether changes in synaptic density and reorganization of functional networks underlie ketamine's putative antidepressant effects in PD.

Deep Brain Stimulation Therapy in Movement Disorders
Recruiting
Background: - In deep brain stimulation (DBS), a device called a neurostimulator is placed in the chest. It is attached to wires in parts of the brain that affect movement. DBS might help people with movement disorders like Parkinson s disease (PD), dystonia, and essential tremor (ET). Objective: - To provide DBS treatment to people with some movement disorders. Eligibility: - Adults 18 years and older with PD, ET, or certain forms of dystonia. Design: Participants will be screened with m... Read More

Combined STN and NBM Deep Brain Stimulation for Mild Cognitive Impairment in Parkinson's Disease
Recruiting
The goal of this clinical trial is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a novel deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the Subthalamic Nucleus (STN) and Nucleus Basalis of Meynert (NBM) to treat cognitive and cognitive-motor symptoms in individuals with Parkinson's disease. The main question it aims to answer is: Is a combined deep brain stimulation approach targeting the STN and NBM with four DBS leads safe and tolerable for cognitive and cognitive-motor symptoms in individuals with Parkinson's...

Natural History Protocol for Movement Disorders
Recruiting
Background: A movement disorder is a condition that causes a person s body to move in ways that are not normal. There are different types. Some disorders cause movements people can t control, such as tics or shaking. Some cause reduced or slow movements. Movement disorders can cause disability in people. Sometimes members of the same family will have the same disorder. Researchers want to learn more about how people develop these disorders. This research could lead to better treatments. Object...

Registry of Deep Brain Stimulation With the VERCISE™ System: Vercise DBS Registry
Recruiting
The purpose of this registry is to compile characteristics of world-wide outcomes for the use of Boston Scientific's commercially available Vercise DBS System in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The utilization of Image Guided Programming (IGP), and other commercially available programming features, used as planning tools for the programming of patients with Boston Scientific's Vercise DBS System are also evaluated. Additionally, the utilization of the DBS Illumina 3D feature that may be... Read More

Clinical Laboratory Evaluation of Chronic Autonomic Failure
Recruiting
Background: The autonomic nervous system controls automatic body functions. Researchers want to improve the tests used to diagnose autonomic failure. Orthostatic hypertension is a drop in blood pressure when a person stands up. Researchers want to focus on this sign of autonomic failure. Objective: To improve testing for conditions that cause autonomic nervous system failure. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older in one of these categories: Their blood pressure drops when they get up. They... Read More
