This is a single-site, sham-controlled, randomized trial in a total of 60 subjects between ages 18 and 40 years with schizophrenia. This study will investigate the effects of 4-week rTMS treatment on brain and cognitive functions in patients. Subjects will be randomized to one of the following arms: Arm 1: Standard of Care (SOC) and active rTMS Arm 2: Standard of Care (SOC) and sham rTMS Each participant will receive rTMS five days per week, for four consecutive weeks. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scans, clinical assessments, and cognitive tests will be performed at baseline, end of the 2nd week, and end of the 4th week.
The experiment will consist of 3 consecutive trials performed in a sound-insulated climate chamber (20°C and 40% RH) at the VUB. Participants will be asked to return 3 successive weeks. Trained staff (pre-doctoral researchers and trained master students) will be present during the experimental trials. The first visit will be a familiarization trial in which they will complete all procedures as if it was an experimental trial, except for the interventional 60min Stroop task. Instead of the 60-min Stroop task the participants' maximal cognitive capacity will be determined. The participant wil come in, perform a cognitive performance test, will then perform the intervention/control procedure, which will be followed by an additional conduction of the same cognitive performance test as before the intervention/control, as well as a physical performance test (time to exhaustion cycling test). The intervention will consist of a 60 min Stroop task, while the control trial will consist of watching a documentary of the same duration. Multiple different questionnaires (e.g. to assess the mentally fatigued state of participants) will be assessed throughout the experimental/control trial. The aim of this study will be to research if mental fatigue influences prefrontal cortex oxygenation during a time to exhaustion cycling test. Marcora et al. (2009) already showed a decrease in cycling performance during the exact same protocol.
H1a: There is a statistically significant difference in anxiety levels between women who received woman-centered care in the early postpartum period and women who received standard care. H1b: There is a statistical difference in terms of comfort levels between women who received woman-centered care in the early postpartum period and women who received standard care. H0a: There is no statistically significant difference in anxiety levels between women who received woman-centered care in the early postpartum period and women who received standard care. H0b: There is no statistical difference in terms of comfort levels between women who receive female-centered care in the early postpartum period and women who receive standard care.
This is a prospective, multi-center, double-blind, randomized clinical trials.
The SenseGuard™ is a new respiratory rate measuring and logging non-invasive device, and measures the respiratory rate by responding to changes in air moisture content in exhaled air. A prospective single-center, single arm study, designed to assess the bias, accuracy , precision and safety of the SenseGuard™ device in measuring of respiratory rate in adult patients. The study shall include a single invitational visit with a respiratory rate measurement duration of 30 minutes for each of 25 adult subjects hospitalized in internal wards.Subjects will be invited to participate should they meet all of the eligibility criteria. Following informed consent, subjects will be measured with both Microstream capnograph and SenseGuard™ measuring simultaneously so their results can be compared.
The purpose of the study is to compare the effectiveness and specificity of agility and cycling exercise training on balance and mobility outcomes in PD and age and gender matched healthy controls. The hypothesis is that due to being profoundly deconditioned, agility and cycling will be similarly effective in PD but agility will be more effective then cycling in healthy old adults, in improving mobility and balance.
This study aims to investigate the preparation of the recipient site prior to autologous fat grafting (AFG) using different methods.
The main objective of this study is to investigate whether the for individuals with thin gingival thickness who are susceptible to gingival recession, the investigators will use i-PRF with microneedle to increase gingival thickness without the need for surgical procedures
To collect biological samples, clinical information and laboratory data from patients diagnosed with any healthcare-related conditions who are seen at facilities affiliated with Intermountain Healthcare, including patients and their family members, and to collect the same information and samples from a general population including disease-free subjects.
The overall goal is to determine whether any energy expenditure compensation in response to 16 weeks of aerobic exercise at a higher-dose is greater compared to a lower-dose intervention in older women, and to begin to investigate underlying physiological mechanisms that influence energy expenditure changes in older women.
