Summary of "Automatic Detection of Cognitive Impairments through Acoustic Analysis of Speech."

Early detection of mild cognitive impairment is crucial in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease. The aim of the present study was to identify whether acoustic features can help differentiate older, independent community-dwelling individuals with cognitive impairment from healthy controls.

A Comparative Study of Auditory-Perceptual Speech Measures for the Early Detection of Mild Speech Impairments.

 The aim of the study was to compare transcription-based speech intelligibility and scaled speech severity for the detection of mild speech impairments, by studying these metrics across talkers with...

HypernasalityNet: Deep recurrent neural network for automatic hypernasality detection.

Cleft palate patients have inability to produce adequate velopharyngeal closure, which results in hypernasal speech. In clinic, hypernasal speech is assessed through subject assessment by speech langu...

Phonetic relevance and phonemic grouping of speech in the automatic detection of Parkinson's Disease.

Literature documents the impact of Parkinson's Disease (PD) on speech but no study has analyzed in detail the importance of the distinct phonemic groups for the automatic identification of the disease...

Formation of phonetically representing text for the recording of speech phonograms in experimental conditions for subsequent instrumental study of acoustic parameters of the voice timbre.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The acoustic aspects of speech in terms of frequency, intensity, and time.

Wide continuum of associated cognitive and neurobehavioral disorders, including, but not limited to, three core-defining features: impairments in socialization, impairments in verbal and nonverbal communication, and restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviors. (from DSM-V)

A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

Acquired or developmental cognitive disorders of AUDITORY PERCEPTION characterized by a reduced ability to perceive information contained in auditory stimuli despite intact auditory pathways. Affected individuals have difficulty with speech perception, sound localization, and comprehending the meaning of inflections of speech.

Substances used for the detection, identification, analysis, etc. of chemical, biological, or pathologic processes or conditions. Indicators are substances that change in physical appearance, e.g., color, at or approaching the endpoint of a chemical titration, e.g., on the passage between acidity and alkalinity. Reagents are substances used for the detection or determination of another substance by chemical or microscopical means, especially analysis. Types of reagents are precipitants, solvents, oxidizers, reducers, fluxes, and colorimetric reagents. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed, p301, p499)
