Reality mining and new media: from big-data to personalized health care

Martin Desseilles and Renaud Lambiotte organize informal meetings, called eStorming meetings, on reality mining and new media in which participants are invited to present core articles and the progress of their research projects. The idea is to propose a time window when to foster creativity and innovation, and to identify cutting edge research questions. eStorming meetings are the opportunity to explore new directions through discussions and interactions. After an important idea is identified, we would perform a small-scale experiment to test the concept and, if successful, apply for additional funding to fully develop it. if you are interested to participate or attend one of these eStorming meetings thank you to send an email to eStorming@mentalthealthsciences.com

 

Former projects includes a master thesis on hyperlearning (i.e. use urrent technologies to improve memory) and a master thesis on motor patern detection through Kinect

Stress and Ageing : a Transdisciplinary Research Approach (SATRAP)

 

In this project we would like to integrate the transdisciplinary study of ageing by a theoretical analysis of the concept of stress.We will compare the subjective definition of stress (sociological and psychological surveys) with objective markers of stress (biological markers). The study of stress will highlight concepts of healthy ageing and active ageing. More precisely, it will also provide policy recommendations to improve the quality of life of older people in the future.

Food and mental health

These researches propose a biopsychosocial perspective on the links between mental health and nutrition. In particular, we discuss the links between nutrition, its social role and mental health. The act of eating is studied as a social integrator and regulator, in the light of Durkheim’s theorization of suicide. Nutrition is also examined as self-destruction, with particular cases of “diet-related suicide.” De-structuring of meals and alienating foods are identified as contributing factors to the de- structuring of “nutrition models.” We then discuss the place of food within the psychopathology, and finally, the links between biological parameters reflected in food and psychopathological vulnerability. Avenues of research and intervention along this bio-psychosocial approach are also proposed.

NEURO-PSYCHOLOGIE

La batterie BAWL (Batterie Attention William Lennox) est un outil informatisé d’évaluation de différentes composantes attentionnelles. Elle a été élaborée dans une visée neuropsychologique. Elle peut toutefois être utilisée à d’autres fins : en psychiatrie, en psychologie cognitive, en gérontologie, en complément d’examens physiologiques, etc. Vu sa structure, elle vise plus spécifiquement l’évaluation de sujets adultes (absence de normes pour des populations d’enfants).
