  1. 1. Evaluating Blood Biomarker Profiles in Adults with New-onset Seizures using Machine Learning

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Sarah Akel; [2022]
    Keywords : Seizure; Seizures; Epilepsy; Neurology; Biomarker; Biomarkers; Blood Biomarkers;

    Abstract : Around 1% of the population worldwide suffer from epilepsy, a condition which is characterized by recurring seizures. The development of reliable biomarkers for both prediction and targeted treatment of seizures is critical, as they can pave the way towards personalized therapy in epilepsy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Non-motor symptoms and their use as markers for prodromal and early Parkinson's disease

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för organismbiologiUppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Aubree Stephens; [2021]
    Keywords : Neurology; Parkinson s; non-motor symptom; prodromal;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder. It is a disease with a broad spectrum of symptoms, both motor and non-motor, but is often only diagnosed when the motor symptoms begin to appear. READ MORE

  3. 3. Normalization of Deep and Shallow CNNs tasked with Medical 3D PET-scans : Analysis of technique applicability

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för informationsteknologi

    Author : Edlir Pllashniku; Zolal Stanikzai; [2021]
    Keywords : Machine learning; Deep learning; Neurology; Normalization; CNN; Deep neural network; Neurodegenerative disorders; Neurodegenerative disorders identification; Maskininlärning; Djup inlärning; Neurologi; Normalisering; CNN; Djupt neurala nätverk; Neurodegenerativa sjukdomar; Identifiering av neurodegenerativa sjukdomar;

    Abstract : There has in recent years been interdisciplinary research on utilizing machine learning for detecting and classifying neurodegenerative disorders with the sole goal of outperforming state-of-the-art models in terms of metrics such as accuracy, specificity, and sensitivity. Specifically, these studies have been conducted using existing networks on ”novel” methods of pre-processing data or by developing new convolutional neural networks. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lumina – An Exploration of How Interactive Lights Can Support Mindfulness

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Fakulteten för kultur och samhälle (KS)

    Author : Leyla Allendes; [2020]
    Keywords : Brain-computer interface; research through design; mindfulness; calm technology; ambient display.;

    Abstract : This thesis project presents a research through design process that has aimed to explore how we can design interactive technologies that can support mindfulness practices in beginners. This has been done by designing a meditative lamp, Lumina, which can be controlled by the user’s neural oscillations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Motor unit localization using high-density surface EMG

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Jonathan Hermansson Lundsberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Localization of muscle motor units (MU) using surface electromyography (sEMG) is of interest in areas including neurology, rehabilitation and prosthetic control. The aim of the thesis is to describe a method for MU localization using high-density sEMG (HDsEMG) and verify the method using simultaneous intramuscular EMG (iEMG) recordings. READ MORE
