Handbook of Decision Support Systems for Neurological Disorders provides readers with complete coverage of advanced computer-aided diagnosis systems for neurological disorders. While computer-aided decision support systems for different medical imaging modalities are available, this is the first book to solely concentrate on decision support systems for neurological disorders. Due to the increase in the prevalence of diseases such as Alzheimer, Parkinson’s and Dementia, this book will have significant importance in the medical field. Topics discussed include recent computational approaches, different types of neurological disorders, deep convolution neural networks, generative adversarial networks, auto encoders, recurrent neural networks, and modified/hybrid artificial neural networks.

Key Features

  • Includes applications of computer intelligence and decision support systems for the diagnosis and analysis of a variety of neurological disorders
  • Presents in-depth, technical coverage of computer-aided systems for tumor image classification, Alzheimer’s disease detection, dementia detection using deep belief neural networks, and morphological approaches for stroke detection
  • Covers disease diagnosis for cerebral palsy using auto-encoder approaches, contrast enhancement for performance enhanced diagnosis systems, autism detection using fuzzy logic systems, and autism detection using generative adversarial networks
  • Written by engineers to help engineers, computer scientists, researchers and clinicians understand the technology and applications of decision support systems for neurological disorders


Biomedical Engineers and researchers in neural engineering, biomedical engineering, computer science, and mathematics. Clinicians and researchers in neuroscience
