BACKGROUND: Mood disorders are dynamic disorders characterized by multimodal symptoms. Clinical assessment of symptoms is currently limited to relatively sparse, routine clinic visits, requiring retrospective recollection of symptoms present in the weeks preceding the visit. Novel advances in mobile tools now support ecological momentary assessment of mood, conducted frequently using mobile devices, outside the clinical setting. Such mood assessment may help circumvent problems associated with infrequent reporting and better characterize the dynamic presentation of mood symptoms, informing the delivery of novel treatment options...

Children with Sensory Processing Dysfunction (SPD) experience incoming information in atypical, distracting ways. Qualitative challenges with attention have been reported in these children, but such difficulties have not been quantified using either behavioral or functional neuroimaging methods. Furthermore, the efficacy of evidence-based cognitive control interventions aimed at enhancing attention in this group has not been tested. Here we present work aimed at characterizing and enhancing attentional abilities for children with SPD...

Caleb Ferguson, Debra Jackson
It's more than likely that a patient, their family member or a colleague may have recently asked you "Is there an app for that?" Mobile technology is inescapable. It is pervasive in almost every aspect of daily life. Wherever we look, people are often hunched over and fully immersed by a small 6 x 3 inch screen, whether it be walking on the street, travelling on the bus, at the coffee shop or in the clinic waiting room. Mobile devices have infiltrated most aspects of our lives and offer quick, adaptive tech-based solutions to many previously administrative, repetitive or otherwise time-consuming tasks...
