Neurological Disorders and Imaging Physics, Volume 3

Application to autism spectrum disorders and Alzheimer's
Ayman El-Baz, Jasjit S Suri


Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) are two significant neurological disorders, which represent the scope of this book. Both ASD and AD affect a significant number of the population and present in numerous ways. This volume covers the state-of-the-art topics that investigate these two significant neurological disorders from a theoretical perspective and focuses on the practical aspects. Materials are presented in a way that can be beneficial to advanced and layman readers and several cutting-edge machine learning techniques for the early diagnosis of ASD are presented in this book. Also, various studies are discussed to demonstrate the formation, cause, and medical treatments for the AD foetal disorder.
