Interpreting weight maps in terms of cognitive or clinical neuroscience: nonsense?

2018 International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Neuroimaging (PRNI), 2018

Since machine learning models have been applied to neuroimaging data, researchers have drawn conclusions from the derived weight maps. In particular, weight maps of classifiers between two conditions are often described as a proxy for the underlying signal differences between the conditions. Recent studies have however suggested that such weight maps could not reliably recover the source of the neural ...

  • Interpreting weight maps in terms of cognitive or clinical neuroscience: nonsense?

    Since machine learning models have been applied to neuroimaging data, researchers have drawn conclusions from the derived weight maps. In particular, weight maps of classifiers between two conditions are often described as a proxy for the underlying signal differences between the conditions. Recent studies have however suggested that such weight maps could not reliably recover the source of the neural signals and even led to false positives (FP). In this work, we used semi-simulated data from ElectroCorticoGraphy (ECoG) to investigate how the signal-to-noise ratio and sparsity of the neural signal affect the similarity between signal and weights. We show that not all cases produce FP and that it is unlikely for FP features to have a high weight in most cases.

  • Real-time measurement of tool-tissue interaction forces in neurosurgery: Quantification and analysis

    Understanding the amount of forces exerted to the brain tissue during the performance of surgical tasks in neurosurgery is critical for educating trainees. Quantifying such forces can help trainees gain important information about the appropriate amount of force required to safely, yet effectively, complete microsurgical tasks. This paper reports the amount of forces exerted during the performance of neurosurgical tasks by means of a force-sensing bipolar forceps, retrofitted by a set of force sensing components. An experienced surgeon and a surgical team conducted a variety of microsurgical tasks on a cadaver brain using the developed instrumented bipolar forceps, while the forces of dissections were measured real-time. Results showed that depending on the surgical task, the peak (effective) value of dissection forces varied between 0.50 N and 1.84 N. Correlation between calculated force signals, during performance of different trials for the same task was investigated using cross correlation test. Results indicated a strong link between the forces measured in different trials.

  • A Force-Sensing Bipolar Forceps to Quantify Tool–Tissue Interaction Forces in Microsurgery

    The ability to exert an appropriate amount of force on brain tissue during surgery is an important component of instrument handling. It allows surgeons to achieve the surgical objective effectively while maintaining a safe level of force in tool-tissue interaction. At the present time, this knowledge, and hence skill, is acquired through experience and is qualitatively conveyed from an expert surgeon to trainees. These forces can be assessed quantitatively by retrofitting surgical tools with sensors, thus providing a mechanism for improved performance and safety of surgery, and enhanced surgical training. This paper presents the development of a force-sensing bipolar forceps, with installation of a sensory system, that is able to measure and record interaction forces between the forceps tips and brain tissue in real time. This research is an extension of a previous research where a bipolar forceps was instrumented to measure dissection and coagulation forces applied in a single direction. Here, a planar forceps with two sets of strain gauges in two orthogonal directions was developed to enable measuring the forces with a higher accuracy. Implementation of two strain gauges allowed compensation of strain values due to deformations of the forceps in other directions (axial stiffening) and provided more accurate forces during microsurgery. An experienced neurosurgeon performed five neurosurgical tasks using the axial setup and repeated the same tasks using the planar device. The experiments were performed on cadaveric brains. Both setups were shown to be capable of measuring real-time interaction forces. Comparing the two setups, under the same experimental condition, indicated that the peak and mean forces quantified by planar forceps were at least 7% and 10% less than those of axial tool, respectively; therefore, utilizing readings of all strain gauges in planar forceps provides more accurate values of both peak and mean forces than axial forceps. Cross-correlation analysis between the two force signals obtained, one from each cadaveric practice, showed a high similarity between the two force signals.

  • Sensory manipulation in writer's cramp: Possibilities for rehabilitation

    In this study, kinematic characteristics of writing are compared in 5 patients with writer's cramp who performed a set of standardized writing tasks. The kinematic characteristics include upper limb joint angles, vertical hand pressure, and finger grip force. The effect of writing on different inclined supporting surfaces is also investigated. Our results indicate that altering upper limb posture using inclined surfaces improves aspects of writing discomfort in writer's cramp subjects. Although the change in arm joint angles and fingers/hand pressure is not generalizable between patients, such kinematic evaluations seem to be a key factor in the outcome of any personalized treatment or rehabilitation strategy.

  • Designing a Thalamic Somatosensory Neural Prosthesis: Consistency and Persistence of Percepts Evoked by Electrical Stimulation

    Intuitive somatosensory feedback is required for fine motor control. Here we explored whether thalamic electrical stimulation could provide the necessary durations and consistency of percepts for a human somatosensory neural prosthetic. Continuous and cycling high-frequency (185 Hz, 0.21 ms pulse duration charge balanced square wave) electrical pulses with the cycling patterns varying between 7% and 67% of duty cycle were applied in five patients with chronically implanted deep brain stimulators. Stimulation produced similar percepts to those elicited immediately after surgery. While consecutive continuous stimuli produced decreasing durations of sensation, the amplitude and type of percept did not change. Cycling stimulation with shorter duty cycles produced more persisting percepts. These features suggest that the thalamus could provide a site for stable and enduring sensations necessary for a long term somatosensory neural prosthesis.

  • Adaptive identification of oscillatory bands from subcortical neural data

    Neural oscillations in various distinct frequency bands and their interrelations yield high temporal resolution signatures of the human brain activity. This study demonstrates solutions to some of the common challenges in the analysis of neurophysiological data by means of subthalamic local field potentials (LFP) acquired form patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) undergoing deep brain stimulation therapy. Multivariate empirical mode decomposition (MEMD), being a data-driven method suitable for multichannel data, is employed. This method allows identification of oscillatory bands without the requirement of fixed a priori basis functions. Our study focuses on two issues: (i) Determination of data specific frequency bands and revealing the weak inconspicuous high frequency components in the data and (ii) validation of the biological meaningfulness of the MEMD oscillatory components via phase-amplitude coupling as previously shown to be inherent in subcortical PD LFP data.

  • Smartphone Allows Capture of Speech Abnormalities Associated With High Risk of Developing Parkinson’s Disease

    Although smartphone technology provides new opportunities for the recording of speech samples in everyday life, its ability to capture prodromal speech impairment in persons with a high risk of developing Parkinson's disease (PD) has never been investigated. Speech data were acquired through a smartphone as well as a professional microphone with a linear frequency response from 50 participants with a rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder that are at a high risk of developing PD and related neurodegenerative disorders. Additionally, recordings of 30 newly diagnosed, untreated PD patients and 30 healthy participants were evaluated. Acoustic assessment of 11 speech dimensions representing the key aspects of hypokinetic dysarthria in the early stages of PD was performed. Smartphone allowed the detection of speech abnormalities in participants with a high risk of developing PD. Acoustic measurements related to fundamental frequency variability, duration of pause intervals, and rate of speech timing extracted from spontaneous speech were sufficiently sensitive to significantly separate groups (area under curve of 0.85 between PD and controls) and showed very strong correlation and reliability between the professional microphone and the smartphone. Speech- based biomarkers collected through smartphones may have the potential to revolutionize the diagnostic process in neurodegenerative diseases and improve stratification for future neuroprotective therapy in PD.

  • Computer-aided diagnosis systems for detecting intracranial aneurysms using 3D angiographic data sets: Review

    Brain aneurysm or intracranial aneurysm is an abnormal dilatation of the cerebral arteries. Detecting unruptured aneurysm remains a challenging task. Indeed, it is complicated and time-consuming for neuroradiologists to detect intracranial aneurysm due to complexity of cerebral vascular anatomy. To solve this problem, computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) approach has become a main tool to assist neuroradiologistsW to interpret unclear findings of aspects mimicking aneurysms. In this paper, we review the state of the art on CAD systems for detecting intracranial aneurysm with an emphasis on highlighting advantages. Hence, various approaches were used in this field. A discussion and conclusion on future possibilities of CAD methodologies for detecting intracranial aneurysm will be produced.

  • Simultaneous PET-MR-EEG: Technology, Challenges and Application in Clinical Neuroscience

    Due to technological developments in PET detectors and PET-MR integration, the simultaneous measurement of PET-MR-EEG has become feasible, offering the possibility of exploring the complementary information provided by each modality. Studies have already shown the benefits of simultaneous measurement using PET-MR, however, such achievements come with different technical and practical challenges. In this context, we aim to give an overview of the technical challenges involved in integrating EEG with hybrid PET-MR scanners and demonstrate possible solutions. When acquiring simultaneous data from multiple modalities, the data acquisition protocol should be optimised in order to utilise time and complementary information most effectively. Thus, practical considerations with regard to protocol optimisation are also discussed, alongside relevant examples. In addition to simultaneous data acquisition, another major challenge is the integration of the multimodal data, which is also addressed. Finally, a clinical application with a strong focus on neuro-psychiatry is shown. This clinical application is discussed with relevant examples from an ongoing clinical study. Finally, the possibility of utilising the PET-MR-EEG data in search for new biomarkers for individualised medicine in clinical neuroscience is briefly explored.

  • Complexity of cerebral blood flow velocity and arterial blood pressure in subarachnoid hemorrhage using time-frequency analysis

    We investigated changes of time-frequency (TF) complexity, in terms of Rényi entropy and a measure of concentration, of middle cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) and arterial blood pressure in relation to the development of cerebral vasospasm in 15 patients after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Interhemispheric differences in the period of no vasospasm and vasospasm were also compared. Results show reduced complexity of TF representations of CBFV on the side of aneurysm before vasospasm was identified. This potentially can serve as an early-warning indicator of future derangement of cerebral circulation.
