Dr Javier Escudero

In my research, I create and apply data analysis tools to extract information from biomedical signals and clinical time series.

 

My main aim is to reveal the subtle changes that major diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's and epilepsy) cause in the brain activity.

 

In collaboration with researchers at Edinburgh, across the UK and overseas, I am currently working in the processing and analysis of biomedical signals, particularly human brain activity. By developing and applying signal processing methods, I aim at increasing our understanding of how several brain conditions progress. Of particular interest is the evaluation of brain functional connectivity in both neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases to understand how they affect the way in which different brain regions interact with each other. I am also interested in the interplay between structure and function in the brain and in the application of pattern recognition techniques to highly-dimensional clinical datasets to support decision making. Finally, I also work in the development of non-invasive methods for rehabilitation purposes, being either the dexterous controls prostheses for amputees or brain-computer interfaces.

Description of PhD:

 

Diagnostic categorisation of scans from individual subjects with ‘functional’ psychiatric disorders (e.g. depression, schizophrenia, ADHD, addictions) is not possible in radiology.  Quantitative neuroimaging inferences (e.g. using SPM or FSL) have only been possible at a group level, not an individual level.  Recently though, machine learning techniques, such as support vector machines (SVMs), have been applied to individual scan categorisation.1,2,3Typically about 80% of a neuroimaging data set  is used to train a SVM classifier and the remainder is used to test the accuracy.  Considerable success has been reported: e.g.  ~85 to 95% accuracy in schizophrenia1 and unipolar major depression.Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children affecting 3 to 5%.  Whilst ~70% of children will respond to and tolerate methylphenidate (MPH), 30% do not.  There are  currently no ways to identify responders from non-responders without exposing the child/young person to a trial of the drug.  Developing methods to identify stimulant non-responders at an individual level and prior to exposure is a clinically important under-researched area. Neuroimaging studies have identified group level quantitative differences in brain structure, distinguishing treatment responders from non-responders. and positive from negative developmental outcomes.  The successful candidate would focus on further developing the high accuracy, hybrid VBM-FBM-SVM image processing technique, started at Dundee University, applying it to ADHD MPH response prediction.  Given the accuracy of categorisation that has been achieved, further development of machine learning based image categorisation techniques has the potential to make a radical advance in neuroimaging, in general, by the introduction of quantitative methods that can inform clinical decisions on individual patients, with ‘functional’ psychiatric, and other disorders.

Dr Rajeev Krishnadas

I completed my basic medical training from Govt Medical College, Thrissur, India, and MD in psychiatry from TN Medical college, Bombay University, India. Following this, I was sponsored by the British Council PGME scheme to train in psychiatry in the UK.  I am a member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, and completed my PhD from the University of Glasgow.

I currently work as a Consultant Psychiatrist with the NHS GGC in ESTEEM, the only early intervention in psychosis team in Scotland.

Academic area of interest include using functional MRI and functional connectivity to predict outcomes in complex mental health problems. Linking inflammation to brain connectivity.
