AI Algorithm

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, information science, robotics/AI

A new type of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm, developed by the Mayo Clinic and the Google Research Brain Team, can potentially pave the way toward more directed brain stimulation for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other movement-related disorders.

According to researchers, this algorithm can more accurately determine the interaction between different regions of the brain — data that will be key for improving the way brain stimulation devices are used in the real world for treating Parkinson’s.

“Our findings show that this new type of algorithm may help us understand which brain regions directly interact with one another, which in turn may help guide placement of electrodes for stimulating devices to treat network brain diseases,” Kai Miller, MD, PhD, a neurosurgeon at Mayo Clinic and the first author of the study, said in a press release.
