Machine learning study provides insights into cognitive impairment in myotonic dystrophy type 1

Machine learning techniques can be used to process multimodal data to provide new insights on cognitive impairment in patients with myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1), a new study finds.

According to researchers at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, USA, manifestations of brain involvement in patients with DM1 can include impairments in working memory, attention, executive functioning, social cognition, and visuospatial function.
