23.09.2019 von 10:00 bis 11:00

Parkinson's disease (PD) is second most common neurodegenerative disorder worldwide. It affects the control of muscles and limbs in the body and typically has negative impact on the speech production. Other motor activities like handwriting and gait are also affected. This talk will start with a general description of several neurodegenerative disorders including PD, Alzheimer's, and Aphasia. Typical speech disorders suffered by PD patients will be discussed and a methodology to automatically model those symptoms is also introduced. The suitability of such a methodology for the automatic detection and monitoring of PD is also discussed. In the final part of the talk, an extension of the methodology is presented considering other bio signals like handwriting and gait.
