Digital Health - PsychoSense

Description / Outline

The Digital Health – PsychoSense research group aims to explore the potential of digital technologies in psychological research to better understand human psychology and behavior. Many psychological research areas still rely on “traditional” methods, such as laboratory protocols or the collection of self-reports or obtrusive, often invasive biomarkers which lack of digital solutions and might limit the advancements of these areas. Thus, our goal is to tackle this issue by working at the intersection of technology, health, and psychology. The research projects of our group include the development of mobile apps, wearable and contactless sensing paradigms, machine learning algorithms, or other digital platforms that can assist in the assessment, induction, or intervention of various psychological states. We also explore the use of virtual reality, biofeedback, and other novel technologies for enhancing emotional regulation, stress management, or cognitive performance.
