Tree Mining in Mental Health Domain

Maja Hadzic; Fedja Hadzic; Tharam Dillon Proceedings of the 41st Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS 2008), 2008

The number of mentally ill people is increasing globally each year. Despite major medical advances, the identification of genetic and environmental factors responsible for mental illnesses still remains unsolved and is therefore a very active research focus today. Semi-structured data structure is predominantly used to enable the meaningful representations of the available mental health knowledge. Data mining techniques can be ...


An ethical discussion on introducing rehabilitation robots for people with disabilities

Noriyuki Tejima RO-MAN 2009 - The 18th IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication, 2009

Hundreds of people with physical disabilities have found practical uses for rehabilitation robots in their lives. This paper discusses the ethical problems that arise when rehabilitation robots are introduced to people with physical disabilities or to people with mental disorder. For people without mental disorder, self-determination would bring a better quality of life. It is more difficult to determine the ...


A method to classify schizophrenia using inter-task spatial correlations of functional brain images

Andrew M. Michael; Vince D. Calhoun; Nancy C. Andreasen; Stefi A. Baum 2008 30th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2008

The clinical heterogeneity of schizophrenia (scz) and the overlap of self reported and observed symptoms with other mental disorders makes its diagnosis a difficult task. At present no laboratory-based or image-based diagnostic tool for scz exists and such tools are desired to support existing methods for more precise diagnosis. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is currently employed to identify and ...


YinYang bipolar dynamic logic (BDL) and equilibrium-based computational neuroscience

Wen-Ran Zhang 2009 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks, 2009

It is argued that without mental equilibrium mental disorder would be ldquobig bangrdquo from nowhere. Based on this argument, YinYang bipolar dynamic logic (BDL) and bipolar dynamic fuzzy logic (BDFL) are introduced; a theory of equilibrium-based computational neuroscience is presented with a 3-tier architecture. Agents, adaptivity, bipolar mental equilibrium, and bipolar disorders are mathematically characterized with bipolar relativity. It is ...


YinYang Dynamic Neurobiological Modeling and Diagnostic Analysis of Major Depressive and Bipolar Disorders

Wen-Ran Zhang; Anand K. Pandurangi; Karl E. Peace IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 2007

Since millions suffer from major depressive and bipolar disorders, the modeling, characterization, classification, and diagnostic analysis of such mental disorders bear great significance in medical and pharmaceutical research. Yin Yang bipolar sets are introduced for neurobiological modeling and diagnostic analysis of such disorders. It is shown that bipolar sets and a bipolar dynamic modus ponens (BDMP) build a technological bridge ...

    Crucial to understanding how the brain works is connectivity, and the centerpiece of brain connectivity is the connectome, a comprehensive description of how neurons and brain regions are connected. The human brain is a network of extraordinary complexity--a network not by way of metaphor, but in a precise and mathematical sense: an intricate web of billions of neurons connected by trillions of synapses. How this network is connected is important for virtually all facets of the brain's integrative function. In this book, Olaf Sporns surveys current efforts to chart these connections--to map the human connectome. Sporns, a pioneer in the field who was the first to define and use the term "connectome," argues that the nascent field of connectomics has already begun to influence the way many neuroscientists collect, analyze, and think about their data. Moreover, the idea of mapping the connections of the human brain in their entirety has captured the imaginations of researchers across several disciplines including human cognition, brain and mental disorders, and complex systems and networks. Sporns describes the biological and conceptual foundations of the connectome; the many research challenges it faces; the many cutting-edge empirical strategies, from electron microscopy to magnetic resonance imaging, deployed to map brain connectivity; the relationship between structure and function; and the wide array of network computational approaches to connectomics. Discovering the Human Connectome offers the first comprehensive overview of current empirical and computational approaches in this rapidly developing field.

  • The Use of Virtual Reality Technology in the Treatment of Anxiety Disorders

    Approximately 23 million Americans will suffer from an anxiety disorder some time during their life. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorders in the United States, the fifth most common diagnosis given to those seen by primary care physicians, and the number one psychiatric diagnosis made by primary-care physicians. All anxiety disorders have two common characteristics. First, patients with these disorders usually experience apprehension, worry, and anxiety more intensely and for a longer period of time than the anxiety experienced by the average person in everyday life. Second, patients often develop ritual acts, repetitive thoughts, or avoidance mechanisms as a way to protect themselves from the anxiety. Anxiety disorders are categorized according to the presence or absence of external stimuli, the cause of the disorder, and the nature of the symptoms. Each major anxiety disorder category is described here and current treatment modalities are evaluated. When viewing mental health disorders and statistics, it is important to remember that incidence refers to the number of new cases in a specific time period, whereas prevalence refers to the total number of cases at a given time. For instance, lifetime prevalence would mean that a person had the disorder at some point in his or her life but may not have had it at the time of the survey described. Initial VR studies have shown VR technology to be effective for the treatment of many anxiety disorders. Issues that clinicians should think about when considering this treatment are discussed.
