Healthy brain subjects
The study seeks to recruit 100 normal, healthy brain subjects between ages 10 and 90 for SPECT brain imaging.
- Baseline SPECT image [ Time Frame: 24 hour assessment and data may be presented up to 10 years later as part of a normative database ]For the baseline resting study with adult subjects approximately 20 milliCuries of Tc-99m-hexamethylpropylene amine oxime (HMPAO, commercially marketed by Amersham Pharmaceuticals under the trade name Ceretec) will be injected after the initial equilibration period. Ceretec is an FDA-approved functional brain imaging radiopharmaceutical currently widely commercially available.
- Concentration SPECT image [ Time Frame: 24 hour assessment and data may be presented up to 10 years later as part of a normative database ]For the concentration study the subject will start the Conner's Continuous Performance Task, a 15-minute computer-administered test of attention, subsequent to the accommodation period. Three minutes into task performance HMPAO will be injected through the catheter with attention to minimal disruption of the subject's attention task. The subject will proceed to completion of the attention task.
