Using Language to Diagnose Neurological Conditions

This morning, I listened to RTF Talk the Talk‘s “Diagnosing with Words” podcast, which gave a really fascinating insight into how linguistics is now being used to diagnose neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Bipolar Disorder.

It was a fascinating insight into how the language we use can be used to predict future neurological orders that we could develop and even how those conditions will develop.

It also has the added benefit of including an interview with one of the PhD researchers currently looking into this area, Katie Fraser.

I’d highly recommend checking it out!
