Daniel A Adler, Dror Ben-Zeev, Vincent W-S Tseng, John M Kane, Rachel Brian, Andrew T Campbell, Marta Hauser, Emily A Scherer, Tanzeem Choudhury,

BACKGROUND:Schizophrenia spectrum disorders (SSDs) are chronic conditions, but the severity of symptomatic experiences and functional impairments vacillate over the course of illness. Developing unobtrusive remote monitoring systems to detect early warning signs of impending symptomatic relapses would allow clinicians to intervene before the patient's condition worsens. OBJECTIVE:In this study, we ... Read more >>

Capturing behavioral indicators of persecutory ideation using mobile technology.

Benjamin Buck, Kevin A Hallgren, Emily Scherer, Rachel Brian, Rui Wang, Weichen Wang, Andrew Campbell, Tanzeem Choudhury, Marta Hauser, John M Kane, Dror Ben-Zeev,

Most existing measures of persecutory ideation (PI) rely on infrequent in-person visits, and this limits their ability to assess rapid changes or real-world functioning. Mobile health (mHealth) technology may address these limitations. Little is known about passively sensed behavioral indicators associated with PI. In the current study, sixty-two participants with ... Read more >>
