Relationship between Depression Level and Bio-signals by Emotional Stimuli

  author={Eun-Hye Jang and Ah Young Kim and Sang-Hyebo Kim and Han Young Yu},
Recent studies in mental/physical health monitoring have noted to improve health and wellbeing with the help of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and in particular, application of biosensors has mainly done because signal acquisition by non-invasive sensors is relatively simple as well as bio-signal is less sensitive to social/cultural difference. Prior to developing a depression monitoring system based on non-invasive bio-signals, we examined a relationship of depressive level and…

Increased heart rate in depressed subjects in spite of unchanged autonomic balance?
Objective physiological and behavioral measures for identifying and tracking depression state in clinically depressed patients
It is shown how noninvasive physiological measures are correlated to depression state and can bed used to track trends in depression state through the course of treatment.
Pressure Sensor Based Estimation of Pulse Transit Time
An automatic technique for continuous non-invasive Pulse Transit Time estimation has been explained which can be further applied to relate with systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Using Support Vector Machines to Enhance the Performance of Elastic Graph Matching for Frontal Face Authentication
A novel approach that reformulates Fisher's discriminant ratio to a quadratic optimization problem subject to a set of inequality constraints by combining statistical pattern recognition and support vector machines is proposed.

The general depression scales used were felt to be insufficient for the purpose of this research project and the more specific scales were also inadequate.
Innovative ICT Solutions to Improve Treatment Outcomes for Depression: The ICT4Depression Project
An ICT-based system for use in primary care that aims to improve access as well as actual care delivery for depressed adults and test the feasibility and acceptability of the ICT4D system within a pilot study in the Netherlands and in Sweden during 2012 and 2013.
Daily electronic self-monitoring of subjective and objective symptoms in bipolar disorder—the MONARCA trial protocol (MONitoring, treAtment and pRediCtion of bipolAr disorder episodes): a randomised controlled single-blind trial
The MONARCA application was developed, allowing patients suffering from bipolar disorder to do daily self-monitoring—including an interactive feedback loop between patients and clinicians through a web-based interface, and the outcomes were changes in affective symptoms, social functioning, perceived stress, self-rated depressive and manic symptoms, quality of life, adherence to medication, stress and cognitive functioning.
The effect of expressing anger on cardiovascular reactivity and facial blood flow in Chinese and Caucasians.
It is suggested that an increase in facial blood flow reduces peripheral vascular resistance during anger expression, and that baroreflexes attenuate increases in heart rate and blood pressure.
Personal Health Systems for Mental Health: The European Projects
Four recently funded projects--Interstress, Monarca, Optimi and Psyche--that aim at using PHS based on virtual reality, biosensors and/or mobile technologies to improve the treatment of bipolar disorders, depression and psychological stress are introduced.
