Could the AI and the Machine Learning support the neuropsychologists in their work?

Could the AI and the Machine Learning support the neuropsychologists in their work?

We tried to answer to this question together with a colleague of mine, Dr. Maria Grazia Vaccaro, a neuropsychologist, in a new work presented at the XXV Congress of Experimental Psychology (Congresso AIP Sezione Sperimentale – Milano-San Raffaele, 18-20 Settembre 2019).

Our abstract, titled “Neuropsychological evaluation could be predictive of different clinical phenotypes of PSP: a machine learning study” won the Travel Grant Award, and it was presented in a mini-talk by Maria Grazia, just a couple of days ago.

We aimed at providing a new way to study the neuropsychological alterations of Parkinson’s disease, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy and its phenotypes PSP-P and PSP-RS, by using the AI for supporting the differential diagnosis.

This is still a challenge, but our findings are encouraging!
