The Role of Digital Health Technology In Neurological Disease Staging with Dr. John Templeton
This is a past event.
Thursday, November 3, 2022 at 3:45pm to 5:00pmVirtual Event
This Thursday's colloquium speaker will be Dr. John Templeton from FIU School of Computing and Information Sciences
Abstract: Due to the complex nature of Parkinson's Disease (PD), several current subjective tools (e.g. staging schemes, clinical screening assessments, and patient-reported outcome questionnaires) are used in practice; however, none of these include objective assessments of all functional areas of neurocognition. The use of digital health technology allows for an expansion of these current staging protocols that encompasses objective, symptom-specific assessments of all neurocognitive functional areas using inherent device capabilities (e.g. device sensors and human device interactions) and feature extraction/analysis techniques (e.g., statistical analysis and machine learning). As individuals with PD manifest differing symptoms with varying progressions, the modernization of assessments that include objective, symptom-specific monitoring is imperative in the formation of classification and disease prediction models, personalized medicine protocols, and an overall increase in an individual’s quality of life.
The speaker was invited by Sneh.
