Abstract

It is difficult to monitor disease progression in some neurodegenerative disorders like Huntington’s disease or types of dementia without using expensive and invasive assessment techniques. Yet, by repeatedly recording and analysing the speech (how we speak, not what we say) of a patient, we build up a picture of how the brain is functioning and changing over time. This will lead to a more personalized approach with more effective treatments being given to the right patients at the right time.
