Diagnosing schizophrenia using computer avatars and a mirror game

Interested in computational biology, mathematical neuroscience, dynamical systems theory and complex systems, Dr Piotr Slowinski is a Research Fellow applying mathematical models to digital health.This presentation will cover the use of avatars to measure differences in perspective-taking and movement as part of early diagnosis of schizophrenia. The results of the first set of trials were promising and now the team is going to be carrying out studies with local mental health service providers to make the system mobile and support home and clinic based assessments.
