There is an urgent need for research into the mechanisms underlying cognition and for the development of strategies that predict the drug responses of individual patients.
Cognitive effects of IR vs XR Topiramate (Trokendi® XR) in Patients with Migraine
The primary objective is to compare the effect of treatment with an immediate-release topiramate to an extended-release topiramate (i.e., Trokendi XR®) regimen on cognition in patients with migraine

Comparison of the Cognitive and Motor Effects of Treatment Between an Immediate-and Extended-Release Tacrolimus (Envarsus® XR) Based ImmunosuppressionRegimen in Kidney Transplant Recipients
The objective is to compare the effect of treatment with an immediate-release tacrolimus (i.e.,Prograf®) to an extended-release tacrolimus-based (i.e., Envarsus® XR) immunosuppressive regimen on cognitive and motor function in kidney transplant recipients.

Pharmacokinetic and Cognitive Side Effects of Cannabidiol in Adult Patients
The goal of this project is to provide preliminary pharmacokinetic data to inform future studies on the safety and efficacy of cannabidiol (CBD) in the treatment of intractable epilepsy. This project will use purified CBD produced according to Minnesota standards to obtain preliminary data on CBD pharmacokinetics including quantification of the effect of food, drug-drug interactions, and the manner in which CBD affects neuropsychological performance in adult patients with intractable epilepsy.

Characterizing and Predicting Drug Effect on Cognition
The objective of this proposal is to elucidate the relationship among TPM exposure as measured by plasma drug levels, its neurophysiological effects, and consequent effect on cognition and linguistic behavior.

Maternal Outcomes and Neurodevelopmental Effects of Antiepileptic Drugs
The proposed studies study several populations of women with and without epilepsy in order to compare the effect of antiepileptic drug exposure on the woman and child during pregnancy. This is a multi clinical site proposal involving approximately 20 sites across the US. This is the clinical grant for MONEAD.
