Pattern classification for discovery of biomarkers of psychiatric disease

Cube proposed by: Chandra Sripada

Unit: Medicine

About this project: 
There is much interest in using functional brain scans for diagnosis of psychiatric diseases such as ADHD, autism, and schizophrenia, but little success so far. We will use advanced pattern classification methods derived from statistics and computer science to discover hidden patterns in diseased brains, patterns too subtle and distributed to be detected by human observers.
