In recent years, reality mining experiments have provided several novel insights into human social behavior that would not have been possible without the novel use of smart phone sensing. In this work, we leverage the latest reality mining experiment to study social behavior from a public health perspective. In particular, we focus on sleep and mood as they(More)
Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) are heterogeneous lesions, both in terms of their appearance on anatomic images and their response to therapy. The goal of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of parameters derived from physiological and metabolic images of these lesions. Fifty-six patients with GBM were scanned immediately before surgical resection(More)
A key challenge of data-driven social science is the gathering of high quality multi-dimensional datasets. A second challenge relates to design and execution of structured experimental interventions in-situ, in a way comparable to the reliability and intentionality of ex-situ laboratory experiments. In this paper we introduce the Friends and Family study,(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate diffusion parameters at pre-, mid-, and post-radiation therapy (RT) in contrast-enhancing and nonenhancing lesions of postsurgical glioblastoma multiforme patients treated with the standard of care RT concurrently with temozolomide (TMZ) followed by adjuvant TMZ and an antiangiogenic drug. The diffusion parameters(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to understand the relationship between automatically captured social exposure and detailed sleep parameters of healthy young adults. METHODS This study was conducted in a real-world setting in a graduate-student housing community at a US university. Social exposure was measured using Bluetooth proximity sensing(More)
Sleep and mood problems have a considerable public health impact with serious societal and significant financial effects. In this work, we study the relationship between these factors in the everyday life of healthy young adults. More importantly, we look at these factors from a social perspective, studying the impact that couples have on each other and the(More)

Abstract Studies have suggested that propinquity; social, cultural, physical and psychological similarities are major factors in close friendship ties. These studies were subject to human recall of interactions with no details of length or(More)
The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) determined from MR diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has shown promise for distinguishing World Health Organization grade II astrocytoma (AS) from the more prognostically favorable grade II oligodendroglioma (OD). Since mixed oligoastrocytomas (OAs) with codeletions in chromosomes 1p and 19q confer prognoses similar to(More)
We live in a fast-paced busy world where one of the key biomedical factors we compensate with is sleep. Sleep impacts many facets of our lives from chronic disorders to workplace productivity, happiness and many other dimensions that we are continually discovering. Advances in technology and health informatics have made it possible to measure and understand(More)
