A seminar was held dated on 3rd December, 2019 which was attended together by students of Cognitive Neuroscience as well students of Biomedical Engineering from the Department of Health Science and Technology, National Central University. The distinguished guest speaker of the seminar was Dr. Kaoru Sakatani project professor at Department of Human and Engineered Environmental Studies, Graduate school of frontier sciences, University of Tokyo. He is also a Board-certified Neurosurgeon.
He delivered his talk about dementia. Dementia is a syndrome usually of a chronic or progressive nature, caused by a variety of brain illness that affect memory, thinking, behavior and everyday activities. He shared that The Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) most commonly used screening test for dementia. But it’s more subjective. Dementia is a complex problem with correct diagnosis requiring historical data, physical exam, cognitive testing, laboratory studies and imaging. In order to prevent dementia onset, it is important to develop a screening test to detect cognitive impairment at an early stage. We have been creating screening tests of dementia by utilizing deep learning. Furthermore, he shared his current findings and suggesting therapies for the treatment of dementia. To improve the quality of life of older people, we have been studying non-pharmacologic therapies on cognitive function. Cosmetic therapy recently invented in Japan have useful effects for treating dementia. He also shared the patient’s pictures with positive effect of Cosmetic therapy among old age people. At the end, he shared his future projects with all and offered for future collaboration. The seminar was ended with a question and answer session in which students take interest by asking more questions. In the future, we hope together we can acquire more in the related field.
