Open Studies

Brain Activity in Chess Players
In this study brain activity is recorded using MEG while people play chess against a computer. The purpose of this study is to examine brain activity that is related to imaging and the formation of strategy.  This is a pilot study to find if brain changes associated with playing ‘blindfold’ chess may be distinguished in MEG recordings.

Brain Rhythms as a Prognostic Marker of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
The purpose of this longitudinal study is to explore the underlying neurological mechanisms responsible for the posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in subjects who have experienced a traumatic event and are seen by the Bellevue Hospital Emergency Department. The study is being conducted in collaboration with Dr. Isaac Galatzer-Levy (NYUSM Department of Psychiatry). The aim is to find if the brain rhythms of those developing PTSD differ from those of subjects who do not develop this disorder after their traumatic event. Subjects are recruited from those enrolled in Dr. Galatzer-Levy’s study.

Brain Rhythms in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
The goal of this study is to find if combat exposed individuals with PTSD have abnormal brain rhythms compared to combat exposed individuals who do not develop PTSD. The study is being conducted in collaboration with Dr. Isaac Galatzer-Levy (NYUSM Department of Psychiatry). Subjects are recruited from those enrolled in Dr. Charles Marmar’s Levy (NYUSM Department of Psychiatry) study of the Biomarkers for PTSD.

Neuronal systems that support word recognition in space and time
The overall goal of this project is to better define the brain activity responsible for word recognition as it unfolds in both space and time. This study is being conducted with Dr. William Graves who is in the Department of Psychology at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Subjects are recruited from those enrolled in Dr. Grave’s study.
