Microbubbles (MBs) are used as contrast agent in ultrasound (US) imaging for a variety of tumours while little has been done for glioblastomas, a rare cancer. Intraoperative Contrast-Enhanced US-imaging (CEUS) using lipidic MBs hold promises in increasing extent of resection of such tumors. Furthermore, MBs gained recently interest as a delivery system for drugs. We will develop a new generation o ...

DESIRE will focus on epileptogenic developmental disorders EDD, i.e. early onset epilepsies whose origin is closely related to developmental brain processes. A major cause of EDD are malformations of cortical development (MCD), either macroscopic or subtle. EDD are often manifested as epileptic encephalopathies (EE), i.e. conditions in which epileptic activity itself may contribute to severe cogni ...

Neuropathic pain is a frequent feature of peripheral neuropathy adversely impacting patients’ quality of life and increasing health care costs. Not all individuals with neuropathy develop pain and it is not possible to predict who is more or less susceptible among those with similar risk exposure. Inability to identify high-risk individuals and drug-responder patients and lack of drugs acting on t ...

A Roadmap for Mental Health Research in Europe (ROAMER)

Start date: Oct 1, 2011, End date: Mar 31, 2015,

"On the regional level, Europe has one of the highest levels of resources for mental health care. Despite this, the high burden and impact of mental disorders in Europe is expected to rise. “ROAdmap for Mental health Research” (ROAMER) is designed to develop a comprehensive, consensus-based roadmap to promote and integrate mental health and well-beingresearch in Europe. Research advances and innov ...

Residential buildings represent 60% of the building stock and the area where most of the potential to drastically reduce energy use and CO2 emissions lies. New directives push for deep retrofitting efforts, in order to achieve energy efficiency and RES adoption targets for 2020 and beyond. These require acting both on envelope and on energy use systems, mainly heating and DHW equipment that repres ...

Psychosocial fActors Relevant to BrAin DISorders in Europe (PARADISE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Jun 30, 2013,

The overall prevalence of brain disorders – both neurological and psychiatric – is very high in Europe. Although it is well known that the burden and costs of these disorders are high, there is evidence that the overall, personal, social and economic costs of brain disorders have been underestimated because of the lack of valid and reliable information regarding the full range of psychosocial diff ...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), characterised by left ventricular hypertrophy and myocyte disarray, is by far the most common cardiac single gene disorder. With a prevalence of 1:500, HCM is predicted to affect approximately one million people within the EU. HCM represents an important clinical problem, being the principal cause of sudden death in young adults, and a valuable opportunity to use ...

"Long-lasting, activity-dependent synaptic changes are thought to underlie the ability of the brain to translate experiences into memories and seem to represent the cellular model underlying learning and memory processes. Alteration of brain plasticity may lead to the motor and cognitive disturbances observed in neurodegenerative diseases. Therapeutic approaches targeting synaptic plasticity could ...

MUltimodal Neuroprostesis for Daily Upper limb Support (MUNDUS)

Start date: Mar 1, 2010, End date: Feb 28, 2013,

MUNDUS is an assistive framework for recovering direct interaction capability of severely motor impaired people based on arm reaching and hand function. Most of the solutions provided by Assistive Technology for supporting independent life of severely impaired people completely substitute the natural interaction with the world, reducing their acceptance. Human dignity and self-esteem are more pres ...

These measures will be grounded in the WHO’s International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). The ICF offers the only scientifically valid framework for evidence-based measurement of non-fatal health outcomes. We also propose to disentangle the confusion found in current ageing studies betw ...
