This study is enrolling participants by invitation only.

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01683214

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.

John Zajecka, Rush University Medical Center
  Purpose
The investigators are conducting this study to test the usefulness of a new type of analysis of electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings called brain network activation or BNA. BNA allows to identify patterns of activation in brain networks and to track their changes over time. The investigators want to examine the possible role of brain network activation (BNA) in the diagnosis of mood disorders and predicting improvement over time. The procedure conducted with patients diagnosed with a mood disorder will be compared to people who do not have a mood disorder.

Condition
Depression

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Potential Use of Brain Network Activation (BNA) Analysis Using Evoked Response Potentials to Diagnose Unipolar Major Depression and Bipolar I Depression and Assess Response to Treatment

Further study details as provided by John Zajecka, Rush University Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation of changes in BNA with changes in mood symptoms [ Time Frame: Beginning of study to end of study ]
    This is an observational study, so no other outcomes are measured


Estimated Enrollment: 250
Study Start Date: August 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
Novel approach to ascertain use of BNA strategy and technology for the use in confirming diagnosis and predicting effect of specific treatment(s)in the various stages of affective/mood disorders. The goal is to develop non-invasive technology to confirm diagnosis via biological outcomes, and to study the preliminary data of predicting response/non-response to specific interventions before clinical effects are shown.
