Address (Room): Zoom webinar
NICM Health Research Institute presents Dr Paola Pedrelli, Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School; and Associate in Psychology at Massachusetts General Hospital, United States. Join guest seminar speaker Dr Pedrelli on 10 June, as she discusses how digital phenotyping, using personal digital devices such as smartphones to assess human behaviour, can be used to assess depression.
Unlike other fields of medicine, psychiatry does not rely on objective indices to diagnose mental health disorders and to assess symptoms severity. Recent advances in the fields of engineering, computer science, and computational science have led to the development of novel methods to quantify and measure behavioural phenotypes of mental health disorders. In this presentation, Dr Pedrelli will describe the concept of digital phenotyping and outline research measuring depressive symptoms severity by collecting behavioural and physiological data with wearable and mobile sensors.
