NCT ID: NCT06281795 Recruiting - Efficacy, Self Clinical Trials

Neuromodulation of the Autonomic Nervous System in Athletes

NANSA
Start date: April 1, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

There are few studies in the literature that have evaluated the effects of using percutaneous stimulation of the auricular branch of the vagus nerve for sports purposes (to accelerate recovery after physical exertion). It has been demonstrated that tVNS in athletes improved the rate of heart rate recovery, reduced lactic acid levels in blood plasma, reduced pain, reduced overtraining syndrome and fatigue levels.

NCT ID: NCT06239142 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, Aneurysmal

Understanding Mental Fatigue After Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

Start date: May 2015
Phase:
Study type: Observational

Fatigue is among the most frequently reported sequelae in stroke survivors. For a specific stroke diagnosis, aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH), fatigue, in general, is reported to be present in 30 to 90% of the patients. It is the mental fatigue component that significantly contributes to difficulties that patients with aSAH face when returning to normal life. However, there is substantial variation in the reported incidence of mental fatigue (25%-60%), which may be attributed to several methodological factors, such as differences in the follow-up periods and instruments used. Consequently, a complete understanding of how mental fatigue influences long-term recovery remains elusive. This research project will contribute to new and important knowledge in long-term effects after SAH when it comes to mental fatigue. In this study patients surviving an SAH will be assessed for mental fatigue at 5 years after the insult. The patients have previously been assessed at 1 and 3 years. All patients have been treated at Sahlgrenska University Hospital during the acute phase after SAH. Follow-up is performed after 5 years after aSAH through a structured telephone interview, where patients are scored using the Glasgow Outcome Scale-Extended (GOSE) Additionally, the patients receive a self-assessment questionnaire, the Mental Fatigue Scale, Patients are reminded to return the questionnaires at three times. This study aims to determine the long-term prevalence, severity, and dynamics of mental fatigue at 1, 3, and 5 years after an aSAH. The study also aims to identify whether demographic characteristics and secondary complications or diagnoses after aSAH can be associated with an increased risk of developing mental fatigue or unfavourable outcome.

NCT ID: NCT06208943 Recruiting - COVID-19 Clinical Trials

Neural and Cognitive Consequences of COVID-19 Survival

Start date: October 1, 2021
Phase:
Study type: Observational

The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 infection, COVID, continues to rage throughout the world with 115,000,000 confirmed cases and over 2,500,000 deaths (as of Mar 3, 2021). This translates to millions of people surviving COVID19 infection. While the lungs are ground zero, COVID tears through organ systems from brain to blood vessels. We are now beginning to see people recover but complain of ongoing problems, including lingering cognitive problems, depression, and anxiety. We have brought together 2 laboratories with complementary techniques including psychological testing and neuroimaging methods togethers with markers in the blood that may signal damage in the brain. A close look at these problems is timely and imperative if we are to understand the pathophysiology of 'COVID brain' and prepare for downstream problems.

NCT ID: NCT06144320 Not yet recruiting - Brain Fog Clinical Trials

Efficacy of Acupuncture in Patients Post-Covid Brain Fog

Start date: November 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

After being infected with Covid-19, many people developed to Brain fog. The treatment strategy now is based on the presumed pathological phenomenon and the physician's clinical experience. Acupuncture has been used to improve cognitive dysfunction caused by central nervous system diseases for many years. A randomized rater-blinded controlled study is proposed to see the efficacy of acupuncture for brain fog.

NCT ID: NCT06134219 Recruiting - Graves Disease Clinical Trials

Course for Brain Fatigue After Graves' Disease Controlled Study

MF-Course
Start date: October 10, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

BACKGROUND. Mental fatigue (MF) is common in the most common form of hyperthyroidism, Graves' disease (GD). Clinically, MF is the primary mental symptom in patients with GD and is characterized by difficulties maintaining attention, exhaustion during cognitively demanding tasks, memory difficulties, irritability, and emotional lability. It may be the main contributing factor to the continued low quality of life in many patients with GD. MF can be measured with an MF score (MFS). The pathophysiology is unknown. There is no medical treatment, which requires patients to adapt to the situation. AIM. In this project, the investigators want to test the hypothesis that mental fatigue improves - with secondary benefits on mental capacity, quality of life (QoL), and function - in patients with persistent mental fatigue in GD, through an MF course as an addition to standard care, compared to patients who receive only standard care. The investigators also test the hypothesis that the MF course is a cost-effective intervention. METHOD. In a randomized controlled study, the investigators evaluate the effect of the MF course compared to standard care only in 96 patients with persistent MF in GD. Markers of mental health, QoL, and activity capacity are evaluated at baseline, 3, 6, and 12 months after intervention/inclusion. The primary outcome measure is MFS at 3 months. CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE. Patients report feeling neglected by healthcare for decades, and healthcare professionals are frustrated by the lack of guidance. Patient organizations highlight the need for research; they want mental symptoms to be characterized as a consequence of thyroid disease, they demand biomarkers, specific treatments, and personalized care. Our research group is working to address the cause of MF in GD and also to alleviate the symptoms. The MF course may prove to be an important tool that can be quickly implemented in clinical practice, especially in primary care. Our involvement in regional/national working groups will facilitate implementation in other units. In this project, the investigators want to test the hypothesis that mental fatigue improves - with secondary benefits on mental capacity, quality of life (QoL), and function - in patients with persistent mental fatigue at GD, through an MF course as an addition to regular healthcare, compared to patients receiving only regular healthcare.

NCT ID: NCT06095297 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Cognitive Impairment

Long COVID Brain Fog: Cognitive Rehabilitation Trial

Start date: April 25, 2024
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study will compare two approaches to cognitive rehabilitation in adults with long COVID with persistent, mild to moderate, cognitive impairment. One approach will feature (A) web-based computer "games" that trains how quickly individuals process information that they receive through their senses; (B) in-lab training on everyday activities with important cognitive components, (C) procedures designed to transfer improvements in cognition from the treatment setting to everyday life, and (D) a non-invasive form of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), i.e., trans-auricular VNS (taVNS). Component B will include work-related tasks. This approach is termed Constraint-Induced Cognitive Therapy (CICT). The other approach will feature (A) web-based computer "games" that train reaction time and eye-hand coordination; (B) in-lab training on relaxation, healthy nutrition, and healthy sleep, (C) procedures designed to promote integration of these lifestyle changes into everyday life, and (D) taVNS. This approach is termed Brain Fitness Training (BFT). A subset of participants, who qualify for and and desire vocational rehabilitation (VR), will receive VR from the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS) in addition to CICT or BFT. ADRS VR will include career counseling, prescription of on-the-job accommodations, and guidance on return-to-work. Those in the CICT + VR group will also receive on-the-job coaching from a peer mentor for a month after completing training. CICT, with or without VR, will involve 30 hours of training. Ten 3-hour in-lab, face-to-face, therapist-directed sessions will be scheduled. These sessions will feature one hour of gaming; the remainder will be committed to in-lab training on the target behaviors and the procedures designed to promote transfer of therapeutic gains to daily life and improving skills essential to work; the set of the latter procedures is termed the Transfer Package. ta-VNS will administered for 10 minutes before gaming and in-lab target behavior training. To accommodate the demands of participants' other activities, training sessions will be permitted to be scheduled as tightly as every weekday over 2 weeks or as loosely as every other weekday or so over 4 weeks. If a family caregiver is available, they will receive training on how to best support participants in their therapeutic program. After training ends, four follow-up phone calls will be scheduled approximately one-week apart with participants to promote integration of the skills gained during training into everyday life. BFT, with or without VR, will involve 30 hours of training following the same schedule as for CICT. Ten 3-hour in-lab, face-to-face, therapist-directed sessions will be scheduled. These sessions will feature one hour of gaming; the remainder will be committed to in-lab training on the target behaviors (healthy sleep, nutrition and relaxation habits) and the procedures designed to promote transfer of behavior change to daily life. ta-VNS will be administered for 10 minutes before gaming and in-lab target behavior training. If a family caregiver is available, they will receive training on how to best support participants in their therapeutic program. After training ends, four follow-up phone calls will be scheduled approximately one-week apart with participants to promote integration of the skills gained during training into everyday life. Participants will be randomly assigned to the interventions. Randomization will be stratified by whether participants qualify for and desire VR from ADRS or not. If yes, participants will be randomized in equal numbers to CICT + VR or BFT + VR. If no, participants will be randomized in equal numbers to CICT or BFT. Testing will happen one month before treatment, one day before treatment, one day afterwards, and 6- and 12-months afterwards. Outcomes measured will include cognitive processing speed, cognitive function on laboratory tests, and spontaneous performance of everyday activities with important cognitive components in daily life. Another important outcome measure will be whether or not participants were able to return back to work or had significant improvements in their work activities.
