Smartphone-derived cognitive function biomarkers

Mindstrong Health, led by Paul Dagum and Tom Insel, has completed a study suggesting that passive measures from smartphone use could be a continuous ecological surrogate for laboratory-based neuropsychological assessment.

Smartphone use of 27 subjects who had received a gold standard neuropsychological assessment was analyzed for 7 days.

Digital biomarkers with high correlations (p < 10−4) for working memory, memory, executive function, language, and intelligence  were identified.
