About the Project
Limited attention has been given to the design of technological management and interventions for individuals who might benefit from self-support tools. Existing technologies commonly range from online therapy programs3 and self-help systems, to designs that supplement psychotherapy by providing additional content to the therapy5. These systems are relying on users to act, to be able to recognise and/or self-report accurately to information in relation to their mental health. Users often do not know how to respond, therefore providing specific direct physical feedback (e.g. tactile or vibration) may ameliorate this effect. Also, the difficulty in accessing possible vulnerable and underserved groups may have made it challenging to design more effective technological interventions that can be tailored to their needs, where technology can have a life-changing impact.
The aim of this project is to design and develop novel technologies supporting emotional regulation in depression and anxiety through biofeedback. The developed prototypes will integrate wearable biosensors and electronic hardware for capturing emotional response such as heart rate variability and respiration, and for mapping them for real time visual, audio, or haptic feedback.
This project will design and develop novel technological tools that can sense and model behaviour and deliver feedback to regulate emotions (including vibrations and light, and sound, etc).
To be eligible to apply, you must hold (or expect to obtain by 1st October 2018) a 1st Class/2.1 UK honours degree (or equivalent as verified by UK Naric and the NTU International development Office) in Computer. For applicants holding a 2.2 UK honours degree this must be supported by a Masters at “Merit” level (or equivalent as verified by UK Naric and the NTU International development Office) as an additional qualification.
