Due to an increasing number of dementia patients, the development of a rapid and sensitive method for cognitive assessment is awaited. Here, we examined the usefulness of a novel and short (3 min) eye tracking device to evaluate the cognitive function of normal control (NC, n = 52), mild cognitive impairment (MCI, n = 52), and Alzheimer's disease (AD, n = 70) subjects. Eye tracking total score declined significantly in MCI (**p < 0. Read More

The details presented in this article revolve around a sophisticated monitoring framework equipped with knowledge representation and computer vision capabilities, that aims to provide innovative solutions and support services in the healthcare sector, with a focus on clinical and non-clinical rehabilitation and care environments for people with mobility problems. In contemporary pervasive systems most modern virtual agents have specific reactions when interacting with humans and usually lack extended dialogue and cognitive competences. The presented tool aims to provide natural human-computer multi-modal interaction via exploitation of state-of-the-art technologies in computer vision, speech recognition and synthesis, knowledge representation, sensor data analysis, and by leveraging prior clinical knowledge and patient history through an intelligent, ontology-driven, dialogue manager with reasoning capabilities, which can also access a web search and retrieval engine module.

Background: Single-best answer questions (SBAQs) are common but are susceptible to cueing. Very short answer questions (VSAQs) could be an alternative, and we sought to determine if students' cognitive processes varied across question types and whether students with different performance levels used different methods for answering questions.Methods: We undertook a 'think aloud' study, interviewing 21 final year medical students at five UK medical schools.

We assessed the role of the general condition of the patient in addition to usual anatomical reasoning to improve the prediction of personalized surgical risk for patients harboring a large and giant petroclival meningiomas. Single-center, retrospective observational study including adult patients surgically treated for a large and giant petroclival meningioma between January 2002 and October 2019 in a French tertiary neurosurgical skull-base center by one Neurosurgeon. Inclusion criteria were as follows: (1) histopathologically proven meningioma; (2) larger than 3 cm in diameter; (3) located within the upper two-thirds of the clivus, the inferior petrosal sinus, or the petrous apex around the trigeminal incisura, medial to the trigeminal nerve.
