When daylight reaches the retina, it provides the internal clock system [suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN)] with information about the time of day, thereby leading to daylight entrainment. Even modest misalignment of the internal clock from sleep/wake behavior can result in poorer sleep quality....

Biomarkers als richtingaanwijzer bij behandeling Doorgaans worden patiënten met depressieve klachten behandeld met antidepressiva zoals escitalopram, venlafaxine of sertraline. De behandelend psychiater maakt, bijvoorbeeld op basis van ervaring, de keuze met welk antidepressivum gestart wordt. Als er een...

Om die reden hebben verschillende onderzoekers en instanties (waaronder Onderzoeksinstituut Brainclinics, NedKAD en de hersenstimulatiestichting) zojuist een consensusverklaring gepubliceerd in het tijdschrift voor psychiatrie. Deze verklaring dient ter verduidelijking van de rol en plek van magnetische hersenstimulatie bij de behandeling van depressie maar ook als handvat om deze techniek effectief en veilig toe te...

Zeven voor leven

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Sponsoring groot succes [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class="maintext"]Het Brainclinics-Vidacto team droeg ruim duizend euro bij aan het totaal van €167.612,- dat de Zeven voor Leven sponsorrit bijeenbracht voor de Stichting Kanker Zien. Na afloop van de sponsorrit spraken we kort met Martijn Arns, oprichter van Brainclinics en ploegleider van het wielerteam. Gefeliciteerd met jullie prestatie! Hoe ging het? Dankjewel! Het viel 100% mee. De rit zelf was best stevig, 140 kilometer in totaal, en door het hoogteverschil van het parcours hebben we 2000 meters geklommen. De moraal was goed en bleef dat ook. Hoe hoog eindigden jullie in het klassement? Het mooie...

The relationship between sleep and ADHD

Pathway Def4x

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text el_class="maintext"][wce_code id=13] Nijmegen, April 23rd, 2019 - Dutch researchers from Research Institute Brainclinics in Nijmegen and PsyQ, (Kenniscentrum ADHD bij volwassenen) in The Hague, discovered a striking link between light, sleep and ADHD, as can be read in two recent scientific publications. They published a study showing that ADHD can be a cause or a consequence of a disturbed sleep-wake rhythm. This new insight can be of great importance in the treatment of ADHD. The importance of sleep Three out of four adults and children (± 75%) with ADHD have difficulty falling asleep. This sleep-wake disorder has major consequences...

Zeven voor Leven (Seven for Life) May 26, 2019, the cycling challenge Zeven voor Leven (Seven For Life) will be held for the first time in the hilly landscape around the municipality of Berg en Dal. The proceeds of the cycling round will go entirely to the Stichting Kanker Zien (Spot Cancer Foundation). The foundation wants to be able to diagnose cancer at an earlier stage and treat tumors in a more targeted way. This also improves the quality of life after treatment....

Brain activity predicts response to Ritalin in ADHD

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][wce_code id=13] [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Brain activity predicts response to Ritalin in ADHD; Implications for male-female differences [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class="maintext"]Nijmegen, July 3rd, 2018 – Today results from the large multicenter iSPOT-A study were published in European Neuropsychopharmacology, demonstrating that brain activity can assist in predicting response to Ritalin in male adolescents with ADHD. In addition, this study clearly demonstrated gender differences in brain activity, where brain activity only predicted Ritalin response in males and not in females with ADHD. No differences in brain activity were found between children with and without ADHD, further demonstrating the value of brain imaging in prognosis rather than diagnosis....

Meta-analysis confirms sustained effects of neurofeedback

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][wce_code id=13] [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Meta-analysis confirms sustained effects of neurofeedback in children with ADHD [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class="maintext"]Nijmegen, February 16th, 2018 -  An international group of researchers conducted a meta-analysis that systematically looked at all available studies and found that after an intensive course of neurofeedback, the clinical benefit of neurofeedback on ADHD symptoms was maintained over a 6-month follow-up period (without treatment). At follow-up the effects of neurofeedback were not inferior to active treatments such as medication, whereas benefits for non-active control groups (such as cognitive training) were no longer present at follow-up. These results have now been published in the scientific...

Male and female brain rhythms show differences

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][wce_code id=13] [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Male and female brain rhythms show differences; 'Deep-Learning' reveals different EEG patterns [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class="maintext"]The electric brain signals, measured by using EEG, of males and females show differences. The difference can’t be detected by visual inspection, not even by the trained eye of a neurologist. A ‘deep learning’ computer is able to find it. Researchers of the University of Twente, the University of Zürich and Research Institute Brainclinics  in Nijmegen, publish these results in Scientific Reports of 15 February. Male and female brains are different, functionally and anatomically. But that the EEG (electro-encephalography) signals, measured using electrodes placed...

After an average of 21 sessions, 66% of patients with treatment resistant depression responded well to treatment, with a lasting effect after 6 months in 65% of this group. rTMS an effective add-on for psychotherapy A large study by Donse, Padberg, Sack, Rush and Arns 1), carried out in...
