EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book integrates the concepts of big data analytics into mental health practice and research. Mental disorders represent a public health challenge of staggering proportions. According to the most recent Global Burden of Disease study, psychiatric disorders constitute the leading cause of years lost to disability. The high morbidity and mortality related to these conditions are proportional to the potential for overall health gains if mental disorders can be more effectively diagnosed and treated. In order to fill these gaps, analysis in science, industry, and government seeks to use big data for a variety of problems, including clinical outcomes and diagnosis in psychiatry. Multiple mental healthcare providers and research laboratories are increasingly using large data sets to fulfill their mission. Briefly, big data is characterized by high volume, high velocity, variety and veracity of information, and to be useful it must be analyzed, interpreted, and acted upon. As such, focus has to shift to new analytical tools from the field of machine learning that will be critical for anyone practicing medicine, psychiatry and behavioral sciences in the 21st century. Big data analytics is gaining traction in psychiatric research, being used to provide predictive models for both clinical practice and public health systems. As compared with traditional statistical methods that provide primarily average group-level results, big data analytics allows predictions and stratification of clinical outcomes at an individual subject level. Personalized Psychiatry – Big Data Analytics in Mental Health provides a unique opportunity to showcase innovative solutions tackling complex problems in mental health using big data and machine learning. It represents an interesting platform to work with key opinion leaders to document current achievements, introduce new concepts as well as project the future role of big data and machine learning in mental health.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book reviews key recent advances and new frontiers within psychiatric research and clinical practice. These advances either represent or are enabling paradigm shifts in the discipline and are influencing how we observe, derive and test hypotheses, and intervene. Progress in information technology is allowing the collection of scattered, fragmented data and the discovery of hidden meanings from stored data, and the impacts on psychiatry are fully explored. Detailed attention is also paid to the applications of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data science technology in psychiatry and to their role in the development of new hypotheses, which in turn promise to lead to new discoveries and treatments. Emerging research methods for precision medicine are discussed, as are a variety of novel theoretical frameworks for research, such as theoretical psychiatry, the developmental approach to the definition of psychopathology, and the theory of constructed emotion. The concluding section considers novel interventions and treatment avenues, including psychobiotics, the use of neuromodulation to augment cognitive control of emotion, and the role of the telomere-telomerase system in psychopharmacological interventions.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Internet and related technologies have reconfigured every aspect of life, including mental health. Although the negative and positive effects of digital technology on mental health have been debated, all too often this has been done with much passion and few or no supporting data. In Mental Health in the Digital Age, Elias Aboujaoude and Vladan Starcevic have edited a book that brings together distinguished experts from around the world to review the evidence relating to this area. The first part of the book addresses threats resulting from the growing reliance on, and misuse of, digital technology; it also looks at how some problematic behaviors and forms of psychopathology have been shaped by this technology. This section reviews problematic Internet and video game use, effects of violent video games on the levels of aggression and of online searches for health-related information on the levels of health anxiety, use of digital technology to harm other people, and promotion of suicide on the Internet. The second part of Mental Health in the Digital Age examines the ways in which digital technology has boosted efforts to help people with mental health problems. These include the use of computers, the Internet, and mobile phones to educate and provide information necessary for psychiatric treatment and to produce programs for psychological therapy, as well as use of electronic mental health records to improve care. Mental Health in the Digital Age is a unique and timely book because it examines comprehensively an intersection between digital technology and mental health and provides a state-of-the-art, evidence-based, and well-balanced look at the field. The book is a valuable resource and guide to an area often shrouded in controversy, as it is a work of critical thinking that separates the hype from the facts and offers data-driven conclusions. It is of interest particularly to mental health professionals, but also to general audience.

Evoked Brain Potentials In Psychiatry
Author: Charles Shagass
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Pages: 274
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Two purposes have guided the writing of this book. Originally, I wanted only to bring together the results which we have obtained during more than ten years of work on evoked potentials in psychiatric disorders. However, it soon became clear that I really wanted to do a little more than that. First of all, a systematic review of the literature seemed indicated. Even though research findings are usually presented in the context of such a review, our laboratory has not studied every aspect of evoked potentials. Consequently, it seemed more appropriate to place our own results within the framework of a general presentation of the evoked-potential field, rather than to have our specific studies govern topic selection. Second, I found that I wanted to expound on the principles and details of techniques to a broader extent than warranted for presenting only our own results. The motivation for attempting such a "methodological primer" came not only from my long-term preoccupation with technical issues, but from contacts with many investigators who consulted me during the early stages of their ventures into evoked-potential research. Thus, to the initial goal of a re search monograph was added that of a systematic account of both the substantive findings and the methodology of the field.

Assessing The Utility Of Digital Health Technology To Improve Our Capacity To Assess And Intervene In Depression

Pages: 177
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

When it comes to mental health, no country is considered developed. In the last decade, the burden of mental health disorders (MHD) has risen in all countries due to disparities in timely diagnosis and access to evidence-based treatments. Additionally, scientists, are still conducting research to understand the underlying mechanisms behind MHD. Part of the problem is that measures of symptom severity are all based on self-reports by patients and clinician observation often resulting in an imprecise measurement of MHD. Those that are more objective (e.g. MRI) are costly and not widely available, nor are they ecologically valid measures of behavior. Additionally, in-clinic assessments tend to be episodic and often miss capturing the lived experience of disease over time including the potential impact of social and environmental factors that are suspected to be linked to neurodevelopmental and psychological processes. To improve long term outcomes in MHD, there is a critical need to develop new ways to objectively assess specific underlying constructs of behavior patterns linked with neuropsychiatric conditions. The pervasive network of smartphones offers researchers a unique opportunity to study MH at a population scale and at a fraction of the cost of traditional clinical research. The high-frequency daily usage of smartphones also provides new ways to capture the individualized momentary experience of living with mental health issues based on "real-world data" (RWD) in an objective, momentary and nonreactive way. The principal findings of this dissertation research show the feasibility of utilizing smartphones to reach, enroll and engage a diverse and nationally representative population as well as the potential of using RWD in predicting mental health outcomes. The RWD collected from more than 2000 participants showed notable inter-/intra-person heterogeneity highlighting the challenges of developing a robust cohort level machine learning model to predict depression. However, personalized N-of-1 models show the promise of "precision digital psychiatry" by assessing an individual's drifts from their own average "digital behavior" as a more reliable predictor of a person0́9s daily mood. Of note, participant enrollment and retention in large-scale digital health research studies remains a significant challenge. Cross study analysis using data from >100,000 participants showed significant underlying biases in technology access and utilization based on participants' demographics that could impact the generalizability of the statistical inference drawn. In addition, the results from a survey-based study on a large and diverse sample show growing concerns among the general public about the security and privacy of their digital data which if left unaddressed can negatively influence people's decision to participate and share data in digital health research. These findings are contemporary and extend the on-going efforts to objectively evaluate the potential fit of technology in psychiatry in engaging the general population to monitor their mental health in the real world outside the clinic. However, while the technology shows the promise to move the psychiatric research from subjective to objective measures, episodic to continuous monitoring, provider-based to ubiquitous and reactive to proactive care; accomplishing these goals does come with measurable challenges. Further research is needed to develop robust and validated digital biomarkers of behavioral health. This includes large scale behavioral phenotyping studies (N > 100,000) that are powered to detect the association between RWD and behavioral anomalies, the ability to integrate RWD across similar studies, improve equitable utilization of technology across a diverse and representative population and address people's concerns about data security and privacy.
