Closed-Loop Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation for the Treatment of Depression
The purpose of this research study is to study closed-loop transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) to determine its effects on symptoms of depression in people with major depressive disorder.
Depression, Aging, Stress and Heart Health Study
Depression is a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), and this comorbidity contributes significantly to the morbidity and mortality of women. The menopausal transition or perimenopause is a period of vulnerability for both depression and CVD, making it a key time to study this critical public health issue. This research will preliminarily explore whether disruption in two novel stress pathways 1) the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and autonomic nervous system (ANS) and ...
The Effects of Animal Assisted Therapy in Outpatient Psychiatry Clinics
This study will examine whether a session of animal-assisted therapy reduces anxiety levels and improves long-term clinical outcomes of outpatient psychiatric patients in regard to their Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD-7), Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9 - Depression assessment), Three Item Loneliness scale (TIL), and Mean Arterial Blood Pressure.
Reducing Sleep disTurbance in Cancer
In a randomized controlled trial (RCT), the investigators will recruit participants to an 8-week "app-based wellness" intervention: the active daily meditation intervention (Calm) or the health education podcast control group (POD), followed by a 12-week follow-up period. The investigators will recruit a total of 276 self-declared Chronic Hematological Cancer (CHC) patients who (representative of age, race/ethnicity, and gender) will be on stable CHC pharmacologic therapy (if any), self-identify ...
Examining the Effects of Estradiol on Neural and Molecular Response to Reward
This proposal will examine the effects of estradiol administration on perimenopausal-onset (PO) anhedonia and psychosis symptoms as well as on brain function using simultaneous positron emission tomography and functional magnetic resonance imaging (PET-MR).
Investigating Central Neurophysiologic Correlates of Non-Motor Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease
This is a randomized, single-blinded, triple crossover study focused on determining the feasibility of using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for treatment of Parkinson's disease related autonomic dysfunction and depression. Participants will undergo TMS to three brain regions: medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) (experimental site), dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) (alternative experimental site), or primary sensory cortex (S1) (control site) in a triple crossover design. Participants ...
A Study of the Change in Disease State and Safety of Oral Cariprazine Capsules in the Treatment of Depression in Pediatric Participants (10 to 17 Years of Age) With Bipolar I Disorder
Bipolar disorder is a severe chronic mood disorder that affects up to 4% of the adult population and 1.8% of the pediatric population in the United States. The treatment of the depressive episodes of bipolar disorder in the pediatric population has not been as widely studied as the treatment of depressive episodes in bipolar disorder in adults, therefore pharmacotherapeutic options are limited. Given the change in disease state and safety demonstrated in adults with depressive episodes associate ...
A Depression and Opioid Pragmatic Trial in Pharmacogenetics (DCRI Coordinating Center)
This study is comprised of three separate pharmacogenetic trials grouped into a single protocol due to similarities in the intervention, the hypotheses, and the trial design. The three trials are the Acute Pain Trial, the Chronic Pain Trial, and the Depression Trial. Participants can enroll in only one of the three trials. Acute Pain Trial: A prospective, multicenter, two arm randomized pragmatic trial. Participants meeting eligibility criteria will be randomly assigned to either immediate phar ...
Personalized Integrated Chronotherapy for Perinatal Depression
Perinatal depression and anxiety are common, serious, and frequently overlapping disorders that increase morbidity and mortality in new mothers (including suicide) and result in poor infant/child outcomes. Current therapies often fail to produce recovery or are poorly tolerated, and many pregnant women seek non-pharmacologic therapy or forgo treatment when non-pharmacologic options are not available. Expectant and new mothers who experience circadian rhythm dysregulation are at increased risk fo ...
Computational Psychiatric Approach to Depression
The purpose of this research is to investigate how the brain changes in patients undergoing electroconvulsive (ECT) treatment for depression. Subjects will be invited to be in this study because (1) they are a patient about to receive ECT treatment for depression, or (2) they are a patient diagnosed with depression and do not qualify for ECT treatment, or (3) they are a healthy adult volunteer with no history of depression. All volunteers must be between the ages of 18-85. Participation in this ...
LUPUS Brain: tACS to Target the Neurophysiology of Depression, Cognitive Deficits, and Pain in Patients With SLE
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of a type of non-invasive transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) on patients diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who are experiencing depression. Targeting depression in patients with SLE may provide benefit to these patients, as there is a clear relationship between chronic pain and depression. The investigators propose that a tACS stimulation montage that was previously used in depression could be beneficial to ...
Health Education Materials With/Out a Physical Activity Program for Patients Who Have Undergone Treatment for High-Risk Stage II or Stage III Colon Cancer
RATIONALE: Participating in a physical activity program designed to increase free time physical activity and receiving written health education materials may influence the chance of cancer recurring as well as impact on physical fitness, psychological well-being and the quality of life of patients who have undergone surgery and chemotherapy for colon cancer. It is not yet known whether giving a physical activity program together with health education materials is more effective than giving healt ...
