Depression screening technology
Effective, non-invasive method of studying a patient’s brain activity.
Recent studies have demonstrated that different EEG signals and their combinations can be used as biomarkers
for depression with up accuracy: 90%
However, psychiatrists are rarely trained in how to run an EEG test or analyze the collected data.
Currently, in the majority of mental health clinics, psychiatrists diagnose depression based on Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) diagnostic criteria or by using other self-reported measures that are prone to the subjectivity of both professionals and patients. This diagnosis method, as well as an absence of methods based on analysis of depression biomarkers, often leads to misdiagnosis and inadequate treatment; it also makes it impossible to accurately monitor pharmacological treatment outcome
How it works
Neuroscience Software is developing an AI/ML software that will help lower patients’ risk of death by suicide and help diagnose, treat, and control treatment outcomes of depression.
