Computer Science Honours Seminar: A multidisciplinary approach to measuring disease progression in Parkinson’s disease

Dr. Deborah Apthorp is a Research Fellow and currently holds a joint appointment at the Research School of Psychology and the Research School of Computer Science. The goal of her research is to utilise novel approaches in systems neuroscience, data analysis and machine learning to gain insight into neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental conditions, particularly Parkinson’s Disease and autism. Her research is in human subjects, and her multi-disciplinary approach involves EEG, postural sway analysis, eye tracking, MRI, and techniques from visual perception research, as well as more conventional clinical and cognitive measures. Her talk will address the goals of her current project on Parkinson’s disease (carried out in collaboration with colleagues from the ANU Medical School, JCSMR, RSCS, and Stanford Medical School), which aims to develop new objective predictors of disease progression in PD.
