AI and Probabilistic Modeling Help Identify Epilepsy-Causing Brain Regions

Using probabilistic modeling and artificial intelligence techniques based on real data from patients suffering from epilepsy, Depend group student researcher Yogatheesan Varatharajah and Mayo Clinic neurologist Dr. Greg Worrell developed a model to identify seizure generating brain regions using only non-seizure data. The new approach has the potential to decrease the time of an epilepsy procedure from days or weeks to just a couple of hours.
