Indian’s research to help develop voice test for Alzheimer’s

A study by an Indian-origin researcher may soon help doctors diagnose patients with Alzheimer’s disease over the phone — just by listening to their voices, according to a media report.

Sona Patel, professor at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, US, has received a $380,000 grant from the National Institute of Deafness and Communicative Disorders to conduct a study on the vocal impacts of the neurological disorder, reported.

She said her research would take forward previous studies that indicated differences in voice patterns between normally ageing adults, and those with Parkinson’s disease.
