Applying Multimodal Psychophysiology to Mental Health (TIPS 2017)

Andrea Webb, PhD, is a psychophysiologist and group leader at Draper where she leads a number of efforts related to understanding and quantifying human signals. Her research focuses on the psychophysiology of mental health disorders, deception, and emotional state. She regularly publishes and presents her work in a variety of peer-reviewed venues.

This talk was part of the panel, Digital Diagnostics: Leveraging Technology to Enhance Mental Health Assessment at the 2017 Technology in Psychiatry Summit, sponsored by the McLean Institute for Technology in Psychiatry on November 6-7, 2017, at the JB Martin Conference Center, Harvard Medical School.

Recent advances in computing now allow us to measure aspects of behavior and physiology that would not have been feasible even a handful of years ago. This panel showcases some examples of cutting edge tools for understanding the brain and behavior that are low cost and scalable toward a future of “digital diagnostics” that can be leveraged to increase the accessibility and impact of mental health services.
