The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently stressed the importance of researching and understanding the neurocognitive effects of cell phones on children and adolescents.

Researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a smartphone app that can monitor a bipolar patient’s voice to detect signs of mood swings. The pilot project, called PRIORI, aims to discover a biological marker to prioritize bipolar disorder treatment for patients who show more urgent symptoms. Mood swings can be detected through their phone conversations but their privacy will also remain protected. This mobile app could be especially beneficial to patients who do not have easy or quick access to mental health care in remote areas.

Many children experience nightmares of some kind during childhood, but if they report experiencing them or any other kind of sleep disturbance over prolonged periods of time, it may point to bullying. This study shows that many children who were bullied did endure night terrors and nightmares afterwards. Researchers argue that this is important because it gives parents and caregivers a way to determine if their child is a victim of bullying even if the child remains silent, and they can address the issue before it develops into bigger, more dangerous mental illness.
