Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders with strong adverse effects on personal and social functioning. The absence of any objective diagnostic aid for depression leads to a range of subjective biases in initial diagnosis and ongoing monitoring. Psychologists use various visual cues in their assessment to quantify depression such as facial expressions, eye contact and head movements. This paper studies the contribution of (upper) body expressions and gestures for automatic… CONTINUE READING
