Project Description

Stress Measurement Network Pilot Projects (NIA): USD$9,677
Passive mobile phone sensing data, which is collected on an ongoing basis, may be able to examine the effect of both acute and prolonged stressors. It also has the advantage of measuring objective, naturalistic behavioral data. New technology with mobile phones can measure behaviors that are known to be associated with stress. This project aims to validate objective behavioral indicators from passive mobile sensing in terms of their relationship to known correlates of stress on both a short-term (perceived stress and mental health symptoms), and long-term (cumulative life stress) basis, and to understand how these behaviors change within subjects during different stress exposures using an examination stress paradigm.
