The development of AI tools for expert systems usually begins with creation of a suite of tools. A neurology-specific AI toolkit is not found in the literature. A software development tool kit, the NEUROBRIDGE, has been developed using Common Lisp. The tool suite includes object-oriented anatomic atlas, natural language processing tools, a data extraction interface between parse trees and database, a logic programming system, an interface between electronic medical records and the database, graphical presentations, and test benchmarks. The workbench provides an infrastructure for neurological AI systems. NEUROBRIDGE was necessary and essential to development of neurological expert systems and should provide a robust framework for future systems evolution.
