Pharmacological Modulation of Brain Oscillations in Memory Processing
The goal of this study is to learn about the effects of scopolamine (an anticholinergic drug) on areas of the brain involved in memory, and changes it may have on brain activity. The investigators will do this by testing epileptic patients who are already undergoing intracranial surgery for seizure monitoring, and measuring the activity from the brain areas being assessed. The main questions it aims to answer are 1) whether scopolamine changes memory activity solely at encoding (the time when t ...
Acute Modulation of Stereotyped High-Frequency Oscillations
Overall, this study will investigate the functional utility of stereotyped HFOs by capturing them with a new implantable system (Brain Interchange - BIC of CorTec), which can sample neural data at higher rates >=1kHz and deliver targeted electrical stimulation to achieve seizure control. In contrast to current closed-loop systems (RNS), which wait for the seizure to start before delivering stimulation, the BIC system will monitor the spatial topography and rate of stereotyped HFOs and deliver ta ...
Mapping and Modulating the Spatiotemporal Dynamics of Socio-Affective Processing
The overall goal of this study is to map the spatiotemporal dynamics of social affective processing and to examine selective modulation of these dynamics in humans undergoing invasive intracranial monitoring for treatment-resistant epilepsy and depression. Pursuing this signal from a novel platform with invasive intracranial recording electrodes provides much-needed spatial and temporal resolution to characterize the neural dynamics of socio-affective processing. The investigators will leverage ...
Understanding Prefrontal and Medial Temporal Neuronal Responses to Algorithmic Cognitive Variables in Epilepsy Patients
Humans have a remarkable ability to flexibly interact with the environment. A compelling demonstration of this cognitive flexibility is human's ability to respond correctly to novel contextual situations on the first attempt, without prior rehearsal. The investigators refer to this ability as 'ad hoc self-programming': 'ad hoc' because these new behavioral repertoires are cobbled together on the fly, based on immediate demand, and then discarded when no longer necessary; 'self-programming' becau ...
RNS System NAUTILUS Study
To demonstrate that the RNS System for thalamic stimulation is safe and effective as an adjunctive therapy for the reduction of primary generalized seizures in individuals 12 years of age or older who have drug-resistant idiopathic generalized epilepsy.
Stopping TSC Onset and Progression 2B: Sirolimus TSC Epilepsy Prevention Study
This trial is a Phase II randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled multi-site study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of early sirolimus to prevent or delay seizure onset in TSC infants. This study is supported by research funding from the Office of Orphan Products Division (OOPD) of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Brain Metabolism Observed at 7 Tesla
The goal is to develop methodology to monitor flux in the citric acid cycle in brain via 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy at 7 Tesla.
Pharmacokinetics Study of VALTOCO® in Pediatric Subjects With Epilepsy
This is a Phase 1/2a, open-label, single-dose, PK study of VALTOCO with open-label safety period in pediatric epilepsy subjects age 2 to 5 years.
Clinical and Electrographic Changes in Responsive Neurostimulation System (RNS) Patients With Acupuncture Treatment
The purpose of this study is to determine effects of Acupuncture on a Patient's mood and cognition,evaluate changes in clinically-reported seizure frequency and severity and analyze effects of Acupuncture on electrographic epileptiform activity stored by the RNS System
A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety, and Pharmacokinetics of Lacosamide in Neonates With Repeated Electroencephalographic Neonatal Seizures
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of lacosamide (LCM) versus an Active Comparator chosen based on standard of care (StOC) in severe and nonsevere seizure burden (defined as total minutes of electroencephalographic neonatal seizures (ENS) per hour) in neonates with seizures that are not adequately controlled with previous anti-epileptic drug (AED) treatment.
Utilizing Activity Trackers to Promote Physical Activity in People With Epilepsy: Can we Make a Difference?
The purpose of this study is to evaluate standard of care exercise education alone or in combination with a wearable physical activity tracker in people with epilepsy (PWE) to determine the most effective way to increase physical activity and measure impact on depression, anxiety, quality of life, sleep, and seizure frequency.
