报告题目:Bayesian Semiparametric Mixed Hidden Markov Model

报告摘要:Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a firmly incurable and progressive disease. The pathology of AD usually evolves from cognitive normal (CN), to mild cognitive impairment (MCI), to AD. The aim of this study is to develop a Bayesian hidden Markov model (HMM) to characterize disease pathology, identify hidden states corresponding to the diagnosed stages of cognitive decline, and examine the dynamic changes of potential risk factors associated with the CN-MCI-AD transition. The HMM framework consists of two major components. The first one is a state-dependent semiparametric regression for delineating the complex associations between clinical outcomes of interest and a set of prognostic biomarkers across neurodegenerative states. The second one is a parametric transition model, while accounting for potential covariate effects on the cross-state transition. The inter-individual and inter-process differences are taken into account via correlated random effects in both components. Based on the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative dataset, we are able to identify four states of AD pathology, corresponding to common diagnosed cognitive decline stages, including CN, early MCI, late MCI, and AD and examine the effects of hippocampus, age, gender, and APOE gene on degeneration of cognitive function across the four cognitive states.
