Deep learning paired with wearable passive sensing data predicts deterioration in anxiety disorder symptoms across 17-18 years

Recent studies have demonstrated that passive smartphone and wearable sensor data collected throughout daily life can predict anxiety symptoms cross-sectionally. However, to date, no research has demonstrated the capacity for these digital biomarkers to predict long-term prognosis. We utilized deep

The Influence of Evidence-Based Exercise and Age Reattribution on Physical Function in Hispanic Older Adults: Results From the ¡Caminemos! Randomized Controlled Trial

Older Hispanics routinely exhibit unhealthy beliefs about "normal" aging trajectories, particularly related to exercise and physical function. We evaluated the prospective effects of age reattribution on physical function in older Hispanics. Participants (n = 565, ≥60 years) were randomly assigned
