Digital health is the use of digital platforms, such as mobile phones and wearable devices, to bring healthcare directly to the patient and provide medical treatment that focuses on the personalized needs of the individual. This personalized approach to healthcare is particularly important for the optimization of clinical trials in psychiatry.

Psychiatric populations are highly heterogeneous, both in terms of symptom severity and cognitive ability. Therefore, when testing a new compound designed to alleviate psychiatric symptoms or exert pro-cognitive effects, it is vitally important to consider the individual variability of the clinical population. In the past, these considerations have often not been accounted for and drug efficacy may have gone undetected as a result.

In this webinar, Director of Digital Neuroscience at Cambridge Cognition, Dr. Nathan Cashdollar, will navigate you through the new field of digital health in psychiatry to conclude which technologies look to be most promising for optimizing clinical trials.


Nathan Cashdollar, PhD, Director of Digital Neuroscience at Cambridge Cognition

With over a decade of experience in both academic and clinical research, Nathan develops scientifically valid and clinically sensitive digital solutions for measuring cognitive performance in healthcare and clinical trial research environments. Over the past 15 years, Nathan has had a breadth of cognitive neuroscience research experience, across multiple institutions in North America, Europe and the United Kingdom. His experience ranges from establishing in vivo biomarkers to track disease progression to creating computational modeling approaches characterizing human cognitive processes and even performing functional neuroimaging on California Sea Lions suffering from neurological damage. With this advanced insight into brain-behavior relationships, Nathan now provides comprehensive scientific consultancy and potentiates the development of digital innovations for clinical trial experimentation in order to optimize design, outcome and ultimately to help those in need.
