In addition to classic motor signs and symptoms, individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) are characterized by emotional deficits. Ongoing brain activity can be recorded by electroencephalograph (EEG) to discover the links between emotional states and brain activity. This study utilized machine-learning algorithms to categorize emotional states in PD(More)
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is not only characterized by its prominent motor symptoms but also associated with disturbances in cognitive and emotional functioning. The objective of the present study was to investigate the influence of emotion processing on inter-hemispheric electroencephalography (EEG) coherence in PD. Multimodal emotional stimuli (happiness,(More)
OBJECTIVE Although an emotional deficit is a common finding in Parkinson's disease (PD), its neurobiological mechanism on emotion recognition is still unknown. This study examined the emotion processing deficits in PD patients using electroencephalogram (EEG) signals in response to multimodal stimuli. METHOD EEG signals were investigated on both positive(More)
Deficits in the ability to process emotions characterize several neuropsychiatric disorders and are traits of Parkinson's disease (PD), and there is need for a method of quantifying emotion, which is currently performed by clinical diagnosis. Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals, being an activity of central nervous system (CNS), can reflect the underlying(More)
The job scheduling problem (JSP) belongs to the well-known combinatorial optimization domain. After scheduling, if a machine maintenance issue affects the scheduled processing of jobs, the delivery of jobs must be delayed. In this paper, we have first proposed a Hybrid Evolutionary Algorithm (HyEA) for solving JSPs. We have then analysed the effect of(More)
The main objective of this work is to develop a portable and cost effective data acquisition (DAQ) system for clinical applications. This DAQ consists of several modules such as power supply, analog to digital converter (ADC), amplifiers, isolators, filters and interfacing circuits. The complete data acquisition circuit has been developed using This system(More)
The p-median (PMP) has the objective of minimizing total distance, a customer/patient needs to travel in order to get a service. Various algorithms have been developed to solve the problem and in this paper, an alternative approach of Genetic Algorithm based heuristics is used to solve the problem in minimizing the travelled distance for a patient to get(More)
