Prefrontal Cortical Engagement through Non-Invasive Stimulation in Schizophrenia (H-41815)
The primary aim of this study is to employ multimodal imaging to explicitly test for the assumed DLPFC engagement (fMRI) and modulation of frontal gamma activity (EEG) by tDCS.

A Prospective, Matched-Control, Randomized, Open-Label, Flexible Dose, Study in Subjects with Recent-Onset Schizophrenia or Schizophreniform Disorder to Compare Disease Progression and Disease Modification Following Treatment with Paliperidone Palmitate Long-Acting Injection or Oral Antipsychotics (H-42057)
The purpose of this study is to compare effectiveness of paliperidone palmitate injections versus oral antipsychotics in subjects with recent-onset schizophrenia or schizophreniform disorder.

A Cluster Randomized, Multi-Center, Parallel-Group, Rater-Blind Study Comparing treatment with Aripiprazole Once Monthly and Treatment as Usual on Effectiveness in First Episode and Early Phase Illness in Schizophrenia (H-42106)
The goal of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the aripiprazole injectable in enhancing medication adherence and decreasing hospitalizations when compared to oral antipsychotics in individuals with first episode or early phase schizophrenia.

The Role for Gamma Oscillations for Working Memory Development in the Adolescent Brain (H-42330)
The purpose of this study is to investigate how short-term memory and the brain change during adolescence. Participants must be healthy adolescents between the ages of 10-12 or 15-17.
