Brain imaging and machine learning to diagnose mild traumatic brain injury

“In this work, we are developing novel diagnostic methods for mild traumatic brain injury (concussion) using brain imaging (e.g., electroencephalography) and machine learning (e.g., support vector machines) techniques to supplement and enhance traditional approaches”, Dr. Jason Satel of School of Psychology explained, the outcomes have been published on relevant international journals.
