Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper we compare the effect of the parameterisation on the automatic detection of diseases based on biomedical data. Exemplarily, we study the analysis of event related brain potentials in patients suffering from panic disorder, whereby the data comprises responses to neutral and panic causing stimuli. This data is parameterised by time-frequency (TF) transforms, from which features are selected by a statistical test. The selected features represent the input to a support vector machine classifier yielding a detection rate for the TF parametrised data. This is compared with detection rates obtained for unparameterised time domain data
