  • Publication number: 20190388679
    Abstract: A method of analyzing performance of a brain stimulation tool is disclosed. The method comprises: obtaining encephalography data collected from a brain of a subject electrically stimulated by at least one of the electrode contacts of the brain stimulation tool; segmenting the data into a plurality of epochs, each corresponding to a single stimulation event generated by the brain stimulation tool; and applying a spatiotemporal analysis to the epochs so as to determine at least one of (i) location of the at least one electrode contact in the brain, and (ii) therapeutic effect of the at least one electrode contact.

  • Publication number: 20190247654
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are described for use with electrophysiological signal detecting electrodes, and a transcranial magnetic stimulation device. A computer processor drives the transcranial stimulation device to apply one or more pulses of transcranial magnetic stimulation to a subject. Within a given time period of applying one of the one or more pulses of transcranial magnetic stimulation to the subject, the computer processor detects an electrophysiological signal of the subject, using the electrophysiological signal detecting electrodes. At least partially in response thereto, the computer processor predicts an outcome of treating the subject for a neuropsychiatric condition, using a given therapy, and generates an output on an output device in response to the predicted outcome. Other applications are also described.

  • Publication number: 20190053726
    Abstract: A method of analyzing neurophysiological data recorded from a subject is disclosed. The method comprises identifying activity-related features in the data, and parceling the data according to the activity-related features to define a plurality of capsules, each representing a spatiotemporal activity region in the brain. The method further comprises comparing at least some of the defined capsules to at least one reference capsule, and estimating a brain function of the subject based on the comparison.

  • Publication number: 20150305685
    Abstract: Systems and methods for identifying and analyzing neuropsychological flow patterns, include creating a knowledge base of neuropsychological flow patterns. The knowledge base is formed by obtaining signals from multiple research groups for particular behavioral processes, localizing sources of activity participating in the particular behavioral processes, identifying sets of patterns of brain activity for the behavioral processes and neuropsychologically analyzing the localized sources and the identified patterns for each of the research groups. The neuropsychological analysis includes identifying all possible pathways for the identified sets of patterns, ranking the possible pathways based on likelihood for the particular behavioral process and reducing the number of ranked possible pathways based on additional constraints. A system for comparison of obtained signals from an individual to the created knowledge base is provided.
