Patients with COPD and MCI received either inspiratory muscle training or inspiratory plus expiratory muscle training and compared the therapeutic effects
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate whether a set of algorithms analysing acoustic and linguistic patterns of speech can detect amyloid-specific cognitive impairment in early stage Alzheimer's disease, as measured by the AUC of the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve of the binary classifier distinguishing between amyloid positive (Arms 1 and 3) and amyloid negative (Arms 2 and 4) Arms. Secondary objectives include (1) evaluating whether similar algorithms can detect amyloid-specific cognitive impairment in the cognitively normal (CN) and MCI Arms respectively, as measured on binary classifier performance; (2) whether they can detect MCI, as measured on binary classifier performance (AUC, sensitivity, specificity, Cohen's kappa), and the agreement between the PACC5 composite and the corresponding regression model predicting it in all Arms pooled (Wilcoxon signed-rank test, CIA); (3) evaluating variables that can impact performance of such algorithms of covariates from the speaker (age, gender, education level) and environment (measures of acoustic quality).
The S22 study investigates, in a cross-sectional study, the ability of algorithms that analyse acoustic and linguistic patterns of spoken language to predict the presence of amyloid positivity in early stage Alzheimer's disease, specifically in Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and cognitively normal (CN) cohorts; and whether similar algorithms can predict cognitive functioning, in classifying MCI vs CN.
The proposed study will evaluate a new approach to cognitive rehabilitation of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) using a brain stimulation technique called transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). Specifically, we will investigate how tDCS combined with cognitive training improves deficits to attention and working memory in Active Duty Service Members with a history of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). Measures of attention-related brain activity, neurocognitive assessments, and self-reported clinical outcomes will be used to determine effects of tDCS vs. sham tDCS when paired with a cognitive training intervention. By doing this study, we hope to find a reliable, noninvasive, and efficient method of treating mild TBI cognitive symptoms.
This study will evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of Neuro-World cognitive training games (Woorisoft, S. Korea) in patients with mild cognitive impairment.
The overall goal of the DISCOVERY study is to better understand what factors contribute to changes in cognitive (i.e., thinking and memory) abilities in patients who experienced a stroke. The purpose of the study is to help doctors identify patients at risk for dementia (decline in memory, thinking and other mental abilities that significantly affects daily functioning) after their stroke so that future treatments may be developed to improve outcomes in stroke patients. For this study, a "stroke" is defined as either (1) an acute ischemic stroke (AIS, or blood clot in the brain), (2) an intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH, or bleeding in the brain), (3) or an aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH, or bleeding around the brain caused by an abnormal bulge in a blood vessel that bursts). The investigators hypothesize that: 1. The size, type and location of the stroke play an important role in recovery of thinking and memory abilities after stroke, and pre-existing indicators of brain health further determine the extent of this recovery. 2. Specific stroke events occurring in individuals with underlying genetic or biological risk factors can cause further declines in brain heath, leading to changes in thinking and memory abilities after stroke. 3. Studying thinking and memory alongside brain imaging and blood samples in patients who have had a stroke allows for earlier identification of declining brain health and development of individualized treatment plans to improve patient outcomes in the future.
This study aims to implement a SUDOKU Mind Activation and Revitalization Training (SMART) Program to promote cognitive health among patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and the use of active mind strategy in preventing dementia among the older adults. The SMART Program consists of two components including, a community empowerment-educational campaign on active mind strategies for older adults, and a 24-week SUDOKU Training Programme for people with MCI.
The purpose of this study is to pilot test a telehealth Advance Care Planning (ACP) intervention among those with either mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or unrecognized dementia. Our goal is to pilot-test and evaluate a pragmatic Telehealth ACP intervention among patients with either the diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or unrecognized dementia.
This trial is investigating if serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) use in Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) patients will lead to a lower rate of progression to dementia. It's hypothesized that patients treated with an SSRI at the time of MCI diagnosis, without evidence of an active primary psychiatric condition other than neurocognitive disorder, will have a lower rate of progression to Alzheimer's disease dementia or to other types of dementia.
Older adults (60+ years of age) who meet criteria for mild cognitive impairment and insomnia will be randomly assigned to cognitive training or trivia training and will complete measures of anxiety, sleep, cognition (objective, self-efficacy), and arousal at baseline, and post-intervention. For cognitive training, participants will be provided with login information to access the computerized training, and will complete 8 weeks (45 mins 3x/week) of cognitive training. For trivia training, participants will receive weekly emails that contain trivia assignments that they will complete for 8 weeks (45 mins 3x/week). We will evaluate short-term (i.e., post-training) effects of the two training conditions on subjective anxiety, sleep, arousal, and subjective and objective cognition.
