About This PhD Project

Project Description

In many neurological disorders, comparable initial neurological deficits may result in a wide range of functional and behavioural deficits in the long term, as the condition develops. However, the prediction of functional and behavioural outcomes is a requirement for the selection and implementation of a specific intervention approach. Data-driven predictive models can help to investigate the heterogeneity within a given class of neurological disorders and guide the identification of homogeneous subgroups of patients. Feature selection, regression, classification and clustering algorithms will be combined to provide innovative solutions to diagnosis and monitoring.
