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!
