Prediction of Parkinson's Disease tremor Onset Using a Radial Basis Function Neural Network Based on Particle Swarm Optimization
TLDR
We use a radial basis function neural network (RBFNN) based on particle swarm optimization (PSO) and principal component analysis (PCA) with Local Field Potential (LFP) data recorded via the stimulation electrodes to predict activity related to tremor onset. Expand
