Help improve treatment for brain injuries using machine learning and R

The field of neuroscience — the study of brains and the nervous system — has taken some major leaps in recent years. Scientists can now gather real-time electrical activity from the brain during actions and thoughts, which is helping to pinpoint the exact location of brain lesions caused by strokes, and is leading to promising treatments for epilepsy and even profound paralysis. Joseph Sirosh describes these advances in a keynote presented at Strata Hadoop World last week:    In the video, Dr Kai Miller, Neurosurgery Resident at Stanford University, described an ingenious experiment designed to link brain activity to perception. In the experiment, several epilepsy patients were shown a series of images, each of which was either a house or a face. Simultaneously, electrical activity on the brain surface was measured by…
