Authors: Li DK, Liu FT, Chen K, Bu LL, Yang K, Chen C, Liu ZY, Tang YL, Zhao J, Sun YM, Wang J, Wu JJ Abstract Depressive symptoms and sensory dysfunction, such as reduction in visual and olfactory function, are common in Parkinson's disease (PD). Previous studies have suggested that depressive symptoms are associated with visual impairments and potentially with hyposmia in several types of mood disorders. However, the relationship between depressive symptoms and sensory dysfunction remains unclear in PD. To examine the association of depressive symptoms with color vision and olfactory function in PD, the authors c...

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2018 Source:Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Author(s): Stuart E. Lacy, Stephen L. Smith, Michael A. Lones Despite having notable advantages over established machine learning methods for time series analysis, reservoir computing methods, such as echo state networks (ESNs), have yet to be widely used for practical data mining applications. In this paper, we address this deficit with a case study that demonstrates how ESNs can be trained to predict disease labels when stimulated with movement data. Since there has been relatively little prior research into using ESNs for cla...

Abstract Lysosome-associated membrane glycoprotein 2 (lamp2) plays critical roles in chaperone-mediated autophagy (CMA) and macroautophagy. Its isoform lamp2a is decreased in Parkinson's disease (PD) substantia nigra. Mutations in the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) gene are the most known common cause of late-onset PD; although LRRK2 is thought to regulate macroautophagy, the influence of LRRK2 mutations on lamp2 concentrations in the CNS is unknown. To examine this issue we compared lamp2 levels in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) between sporadic PD (sPD) patients (n = 31), LRRK2 PD patients (n = 20), and...
