COVID-19 PSYCHOLOGICAL RESPONSE
This research is conducted in collaboration with the Stanford Department of Neurosurgery
We are a group of Stanford University researchers studying the global impact of Psychological Stress on Remote Work during the COVID-19 crisis. You are invited to take this 8-10 minute survey to help us evaluate the level of stress and the factors related to remote work, homeschooling, and dependent care. You must be 18 years of age or older to take this survey.
TBI, TMS, AND MEMORY
Efficacy of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Improvement of Memory in Older Adults With TBI
The proposed study will evaluate the safety, durability and efficacy of repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) as a promising non-invasive therapeutic treatment for improving memory in older adults with mild or moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) who have been experiencing residual memory or cognitive problems that affect daily functioning.
GULF WAR HEADACHES AND RTMS
rTMS in Alleviating Pain and Co-Morbid Symptoms in Gulf War Veterans Illness (GWVI) and Long Term Efficacy of Neuronavigation Guided rTMS in Alleviating Gulf War Illness Related Headaches and Pain Symptoms
Headaches (HA), muscle and joint pain, are some of the most common debilitating symptoms in military personnel served in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War (GW1). Migraine like HA and diffuse body pain were detected in 64% of Gulf War Veteran (GWV) diagnosed with Gulf War Illness (GWI). Unfortunately, conventional pharmacological treatments for GWI-related pain has not been shown to be effective and drugs such as narcotics contain many long term untoward psychosomatic and abusive side effects. This study is assessing the effectiveness of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), non-invasive treatment option, in alleviating headaches, muscle, and joint pain symptoms of GWI.
