Special Issues: Novel modeling methodologies for the neuropathological dimensions of Parkinson’s disease

The combination of Artificial Neural Networks and Fuzzy Logic Systems enables the representation of real-world problems via the creation of intelligent and adaptive systems. By adapting the interconnections between layers, Artificial Neural networks are able to learn. A computing framework based on the concept of fuzzy set and rules as well as fuzzy reasoning is offered by fuzzy logic inference systems. The fusion of the aforementioned adaptive structures is called a “Neuro-Fuzzy” system. In this paper, the main elements of said structures are examined. Researchers have noticed that this fusion could be applied for pattern recognition in medical applications.
