Nature, the peer-reviewed, scientific journal, is picking up on the trend of mobile technology in health research, shown by their publication of an in-depth and accessible review on the topic. The review includes, amongst others, the views of Tom Insel, president and co-founder of Mindstrong Health, and member of the RADAR-CNS Scientific Advisory Board. Math Kaplan, the author of the review, discusses the potential and pitfalls of mobile technology in health research. In addition, the article stresses the need for in-depth assessment and valorisation of this technological development.

RADAR-CNS aims to provide such in-depth assessment and valorisation of mobile technology use in health research. The project investigates whether mobile technology can be used to monitor and predict changes in patients with major depressive disorder, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.
