Principal Investigator's Name: Maria Constantinou
Institution: University of Cyprus
Department: Department of Computer Science
Proposed Analysis: My work aims to develop novel intelligent methods to automatically detect hallmarks of MCI and dementia in structural (sMRI) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) brain scans. To achieve this, I’m developing advanced deep convolutional neural network classifiers, for analysing sMRI and resting-state fMRI. I would like to use the ADNI data for training and testing the classifiers.

Investigator's Name: Marios Pafitis
Proposed Analysis: Developed convolutional neural network (CNN) models to classify AD and NC brain MRI slices. Tested combining convolutional neural network (CNN) classifiers with Hessian-free optimization (second-order algorithm) to improve their training speed and performance compared to commonly used first-order algorithms.
