Computational Techniques in ICU: Neural Synchrony Predicts Outcome After Coma

Published

on

Coma patients in ICU, e.g. after cardiac arrest, have been targeted in research projects for many years. One of the key questions is how to predict the outcome after coma. Current approaches are often based on qualitative assessment of electroencephalogram (EEG) patterns. They are relatively slow, time consuming and depend on advanced clinical expertise. Furthermore, they are subject to individual variability among the experts involved. Given the importance and frequency of the problem, new approaches involving computer science and AI are being investigated worldwide.In this study, the research team focused on how sound was processed in the brain on the first day after coma onset. They examined measures of neural synchrony and neural complexity with quantitative methods using computational tools.

Hi JT,

In Danville, you would definitely need a good outdoor antenna. One that is designed to pick up VHF as well as UHF. Our signal is there, but is too far away to effectively penetrate buildings. Thank you and please keep us posted!

Drinking Alcohol While Pregnant Significantly Alters the Baby’s Brain Structure, MRIs Reveal

Published

on

The brain structure of fetuses exposed to alcohol significantly differs from the developing brains other unborn babies, a new MRI-based study shows. Unborn babies exposed to alcohol have a larger corpus collosum – the main connection between the brain’s two hemispheres – and a smaller periventricular zone, the area where neurons originate.
