Can your iPhone tell if you're depressed "Like every family or father, I wanted to try to help him," Nelson said.
He thought that if his son was able to use an app that could track early warning signs, he might be better equipped to seek help. To oakley c wire sunglasses find out whether a user might be experiencing a manic or depressive episode, the app tracks typing speed, how hard keys are pressed and the frequency of the use of backspace and spellcheck. A recent study oakley e wire by Leow and Nelson, who is the dean of the University of Illinois College of Engineering, showedphone metadata such as typing speed, spelling errors and using backspace while texting correlate with manic and depressive oakley 50 off episodes. People in a manic episode have reduced impulse control, which makes them less likely to take time to accept spell check recommendations, says Leow. They also tend to talk faster. "So one hypothesis that we have is if they are talking faster, they should be typing faster," said Leow, an associate professor of psychiatry at UIC. This might not be the case for everyone. Some might want to speak in person. "Every person is different, and that's what's really fascinating about human behaviour," Leow said. In a depressive episode, people were more likely to type slower. BiAffect recently won the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Mood Challenge, a $US200,000 prize for proposals that further an understanding of how mood relates to daily lives and well being.
BiAffect does not track the content of texting or other keyboard oakley india use because of privacy safeguards. But by downloading the app, which allows tracking of keyboard strokes, it monitors texting mechanisms. Leow and Nelson hope that with more downloads, the data can serve as a crowd sourced study collecting stats on mood and cognition among many different users.
