This study aims to assess the effectiveness of an investigative device called the Stride Plus by using music to improve walking speed in people who have had a stroke.
Researchers are studying how noninvasive brain stimulation using a device called HD-tDCS that delivers a weak electric current to the brain can help in improving hand functions in stroke patients.
Participants will have an MRI scan followed by magnetic brain stimulation using TMS, a device that
The purpose of this study is to discover if practicing specific exercises that use robots and specialized gloves to play computer games (virtual reality computer game training) can improve the ability to use the arm and hand weakened after a stroke. The study compares the effects of virtual reality
The purpose of this research study is to assess medication self-administration and the impact of three different interventions on improving medication adherence (the ability to take correct doses at the right time of the day for each medication prescribed). The findings for this study may help
The goal of this research study is to better understand the brain mechanisms involved in reading. The findings from this study may help develop new methods for diagnosis and treatment of reading problems after stroke.
The purpose of this study is to compare 3 therapies to see if they result in different amounts of recovery of hand movement and function after stroke. The first therapy focuses on using the weak hand to do everyday tasks, the second therapy uses a device to open the weak hand using electrical
|The goal of this work is to investigate a potential neural mechanism explaining the high incidence of both delirium and spatial neglect after right-brain stroke and to perform ongoing comparison of the usefulness of specific performance tasks in characterizing these disorders.|
Evaluation of a computerized biofeedback based intervention to improve postural control and remedy balance dysfunction in Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Including Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
The purpose of this research study is to assess your ability to sense small changes in movement under your feet while standing and determine if a computerized balance program could improve your balance.
A Clinical-Research Network to Identify Spatial Disorders After Brain Injury and Improve the Quality of Rehabilitation Care
|In the current multi-site project, we will work with several rehabilitation hospitals in identifying spatial neglect patients using neuroscience-based procedures and collecting data to provide better care for neglect patients.|
