neuro degenerative disease
"Debilitating conditions due to progressive degeneration and (or) death of neurons"
"Neurodegenerative disease includes conditions primarily affecting the neurons (building blocks of the nervous system) in the human brain. They include Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Huntington’s disease. MMSE evaluates cognitive ability and change in MMSE score can be one of the idicative of disease status." Source:
Neuro-degenerative diseases e.g. Alzheimer's diseases research I pursued in my recent past. The aim of this research is to predict quantitative biomarkers based on genotypic and clinical data. It is based on statistical learning of models using data collected from a set of patients with known characteristics. The work takes various clinical parameters, MRI images and genotype data to predict cognitive deline in terms of change in MMSE scores across timeline and models via a novel heirarchical Support Vector Regressor.
Crowdsourced estimation of cognitive decline and resilience in Alzheimer's disease
The Neuroallianz consortium used the probabilistic prior approach to explore biological effect similarities of compound treatments.
