Other Movement Disorders

A Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) is a device that is intended to benefit patients by treating or diagnosing a disease or condition that affects or is manifested in fewer than 4,000 individuals in the United States per year. IRB approval is required in all cases, but physicians and sites do not collect research data and are not compensated monetarily for the regulatory support they offer. These devices are offered for the benefit of the patient only.

Medtronic DBS Therapy for Dystonia: Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) therapy delivers electrical stimulation to areas in the brain to help control symptoms of various movement disorders such as chronic, intractable (drug refractory) dystonia, including generalized and segmental dystonia, hemidystonia, and cervical dystonia (torticollis).

BCI: Development of a Brain Computer Interface Program for Research 

Brain computer interface systems provide those with paralysis the ability to control a computer or electronic device with their brain waves.  The purpose of this research study is to develop tools, algorithms, and other technology to build a BCI system and to further the knowledge of human brain functions.  People with and without neurological injuries are being recruited to participate in an EEG study for the development of a BCI.  Participants will be asked to wear an EEG cap, practice controlling a computer game, and perform directed movements and speech.  Research sessions will last approximately 3 hours.

Enrollment is on hold – please check back at this site for updates
