Artificial Intelligence In Mental Health Care

Could the advancement of machine and deep learning algorithms be harnessed meaningfully in the area of mental health? Could depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or any other mental disorder be quantified so that technology could somehow add positively to their diagnostics or treatment? We tried to explore the uses of artificial intelligence in mental health care, and stumbled upon smart algorithms that support clinicians with early detection and diagnostics of mental health issues, with the flagging of suicide risks, and other ones that help patients manage their condition through counselling and constantly being there for them. Could mental health become quantifiable? While preparing our article about the future of psychiatry, we realized that one of the most exciting and controversial intersections of mental health and technology is the attempt to place artificial intelligence into psychology and psychiatry. Machine learning and deep learning algorithms are based on ‘hard core’ physical datasets: lesions spotted on X-ray images, CT scans, or malignant tissue samples. How could the achievements of artificial narrow intelligence and its two most advanced fields, computer vision and natural language processing be applied in such a fluidly classifiable field as mental health disorders? Let’s approach the difficult question from looking at areas where smart algorithms excel: classification and clustering data coming from images, written or spo...

The liquefaction of PHS was conducted at various pressures (0.5–2.3 MPa) for 5–30 min. As evidenced by the scanning electron microscopy analysis, ICSE caused randomly cracks ...

SalyaevAbstractThe role of glutathione in the plant vacuole is still being debated. In the present paper, the redox state of glutathione and the activity of glutathione S-transferase (GST, E 2.5.1.18) in the vacuole compared to those in leucoplast have been studied. Organelles were isolated from dormant red beet (Beta vulgaris L.) taproots. Two generally used approaches have been applied to quantitatively assess the content of glutathione. Initially, le...

In this study, a poly (ε–caprolactone) grafted graphene quantum dots–based dispersive solid phase extraction coupled with dispersive liquid–liquid microextraction has been developed to extract nine pesticides including penconazole, chlorpyrifos, haloxyfop–R–methyl, oxadiazon, clodinafop–propargyl, diniconazole, fenazaquin, fenpropathrin, and fenoxaprop–P–ethyl from different packed fruit juice samples (pomegranate, watermelon, apricot, grape, sour cherry, apple, and orange juices). In the first step, the analytes are adsorbed onto the sorbent and after that the sorben...

This study seeks to investigate whether paternal VPA exposure in rodents triggers behavioral and epigenetic alterations in offspring. The results show that paternal VPA exposure impairs object cognitive memory, suppresses the hyperactivity evoked by an NMDA receptor antagonist in male and female offspring, and disturbs sensorimotor gating in only females. In addition, since VPA is well known as an inhibitor of histone deacetylases, we examined the levels of acetylated histone H3 in the frontal cortex and hippocampus in the offspring of VPA-exposed sires. Interestingly, paternal VPA exposure down-regulates the levels of ace...
