  abstract =     "In this work, a revised form of Implicit Context
                 Representation Cartesian Genetic Programming is used in
                 the development of a diagnostic tool for the assessment
                 of patients with neurological dysfunction such as
                 Alzheimer's disease. Specifically, visuo-spatial
                 ability is assessed by analysing subjects' digitised
                 responses to a simple figure copying task using a
                 conventional test environment. The algorithm was
                 trained to distinguish between classes of visuo-spatial
                 ability based on responses to the figure copying test
                 by 7-11 year old children in which visuo-spatial
                 ability is at varying stages of maturity. Results from
                 receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis are
                 presented for the training and subsequent testing of
                 the algorithm and demonstrate this technique has the
                 potential to form the basis of an objective assessment
                 of visuo-spatial ability.",
