NCT ID: NCT05355493 Not yet recruiting - Mental Fatigue Clinical Trials

The Effect of Mental Fatigue on the Cerebral Oxygenation During Endurance Exercise

Start date: May 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

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.

NCT ID: NCT05323318 Recruiting - COVID-19 Clinical Trials

Neuropsychological Sequelae and Long COVID-19 Fatigue

PostCoV2Psy
Start date: April 1, 2022
Phase:
Study type: Observational

An association of fatigue with post-viral neuropsychological disturbs has been reported. Among patients hospitalized with COVID-19 there is an increased incidence of anxiety and depression symptoms. In addition, a quarter of patients experience at least mild symptoms of acute post traumatic stress disorder. (Mazza, M. G. et al 2020). The prevalence of chronic fatigue syndrome had a correlation with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a study conducted after the outbreak of the COVID-19 in Iran (Silmani et al, 2021), that showed 5.8% of subjects suffering from PTSD after 6 months of SARS-CoV-2 infection onset. In this Study we propose to use a tool to quantify the degree of physical and psychological fatigue in post-COVID-19 patients, and assess the correlation of fatigue with the neuropsychiatric sequelae in hospitalized and non hospitalized patients.

NCT ID: NCT05236244 Recruiting - Health, Subjective Clinical Trials

Motor Imagery in Healthy Individuals

Start date: April 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The research will be the first to examine the relationship between mental fatigue induced by motor imagery and upper extremity performance. This study, it is aimed to examine whether the effects of mental fatigue created by motor imagery on upper extremity performance can be reduced by diaphragmatic breathing exercises.

NCT ID: NCT05233046 Not yet recruiting - Eating Disorders Clinical Trials

Impact of Mindfulness Program on Perceived Wellness, Eating Habits and Relationship to Food

Start date: February 2, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Mindfulness, seemingly a simple concept, research shows that the impact of mindfulness on the overall wellness of an individual can be helpful (5). Research supports that mindfulness leads to reduced stress, enhanced performance, better focus, and improved approach (7). Areas of mindfulnessare mindful eating,movement and meditation. Application of mindfulness tools in these areas can be beneficial to health outcomes and to create a happier more efficient work environment (9). Mindful eating shows to improve diet quality and attitudes toward food and eating. Individuals better understand physical hunger/fullness cues, improve nutrient density, weight control,digestion,systolic blood pressure, and stress(2). Disordered eating behaviors have also shown to improve(3). Mindless eating, such as eating while being on the phone, driving, or watching television can have the opposite effect and can be linked to more emotional hunger cues. Combining mindful eating with diet therapy can lead to healthier food choices and a more positive feeling towards eating and body image, reducing stress and improving the overall wellness of an individual (4). Aspire's experience shows that aspects of teacher's wellness is worsening with ,media reporting more and more employees resigning from their positions every day (wccb,2021). Teachers have voiced their need for more support with their wellbeing. As a result, Aspire Nutrition is targeting school employees through a newly developed mindfulness program titled Nourish Carolina. This program will be focused on improving the overall wellness of participants Participants are enrolled in the study for 12 weeks. All participants will have weekly nutritional counseling and bi-weekly mental health counseling. Study group will have nutrition and mental health counseling with mindfulness activities and control group will receive nutrition and mental health sessions without mindfulness activities. There is a program curriculum so that mental health and nutrition mindfulness activities compliment eachother The mindfulness lessons for study group are divided into 6 nutrition and 6 mental health sessions,for 15 minutes during the session. Positive outcomes could include improved workplace performance as a result of enhancing school employees overall wellness and quality of life by reducing stress levels, improving diet quality, and improving mental health.

NCT ID: NCT05116332 Recruiting - Surgery Clinical Trials

Comparing the Variation in Laparoscopic Skills Acquisition in Obstetrics & Gynaecology and General Surgical Trainees

LAGGS
Start date: September 11, 2021
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The investigators postulate that there is a difference in the acquisition of fundamental laparoscopic skills (FLS) between general surgical and Obstetrics & Gynecology (O&G) trainees, although not investigated previously. This discrepancy is also likely to influence the musculoskeletal and cognitive fatigue trainees experience within both specialties. Additionally, there is likely to be a discrepancy in the expectations by consultants and trainees on skills perceived to be important at the completion of training (CCT). This study aims to compare and evaluate the discrepancy in FLS acquisition amongst O&G and GS trainees in order to identify areas for improvement in the training pathway, the associated fatigue experience and highlight the expectations perceived to be required at the completion of training.

NCT ID: NCT05100667 Recruiting - Hypoxia Clinical Trials

A Potential Role for Oxygen in the Development of Mental Fatigue and the Subsequent Decline in Cognitive Performance

Start date: May 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Introduction Both Mental Fatigue (MF) and hypoxia impair multiple aspects of cognitive functioning. The decline in cognitive functioning in hypoxic conditions is associated with alterations in brain oxygenation and hemodynamic responses. These hemodynamic responses are preferably measured at the prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain that is known for its executive function and role in decision making, planning, attention and (short-term) memory. This study will investigate the role of prefrontal cortex oxygenation during the development of mental fatigue and during cognitive performances by altering the ambient oxygen availability through normobaric hypoxia (3800m; 12,9% O2) and normoxia. Methods Subjects will perform four trials in a sound-insulated climate chamber (20°C and 40% RH). Upon entry in the climatic chamber participants will adapt to the environment for 30 minutes. Next, they will perform a modified cognitive test battery "cognition", a fine motor task "Motor Performance Series" and a visuomotor-fitlight task before and after a 60-minute individualized Stroop task or control task (randomized. blinded, placebo controlled, counter-balanced, cross-over design). Nearinfrared spectroscopy (NIRS) will be used to assess hemodynamic changes (oxygenated hemoglobin (O2Hb), deoxygenated-hemoglobin (HHb) and total hemoglobin (tHb)) at the PFC. Hypotheses 1) MF will lead to earlier changes in the prefrontal NIRS-parameters (O2Hb, HHb, tHb) with lower oxygen availability. 2) The effects of MF on cognitive performance manifest itself to a greater extent with lower oxygen availability.3) Visuomotor performance declines to a greater extent due to MF with lower oxygen availability.

NCT ID: NCT05009784 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Heart Rate Variability

Effects of Natural Sounds on Attention Restoration in Noisy Environment

EARS
Start date: August 25, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study aims to examine whether 1) listening to natural sounds in a noisy (traffic) environment compared to traffic noise only, 2) listening to different natural sounds (e.g., birds, water), and 3) different durations of exposure of natural sounds and/ or traffic noise impact behavioral, cognitive, affective, and physiological markers associated with attention restoration. Attention restoration will be examined as an aspect of cognitive fatigue and stress recovery.
