Sensing for diagnosis of dementia

Principal investigator

Professor P. A. Kyriacou

Dr J. Phillips

Dr M. Hickey

Project overview

This project supports fundamental research in sensing targeted specifically at the diagnosis of dementias and the quantitative measurement of disease progression. The aim is to deliver non-invasive and cost effective solutions with applications making a clear contribution to one or more of the following:

  • Technologies/techniques which more accurately and easily differentiate dementia sub-types. Applications which focus on prodromal, presymptomatic stages of the disease are particularly welcomed.
  • Technologies/techniques which enable quantitative measurement of disease progression of dementia.
