PapersPsilocybin Therapy for Treatment Resistant Depression: Prediction of Clinical Outcome by Natural Language Processing
This preprint article of a language model (NLP, BART) finds that the audio from psychological support sessions (in the COMP360 trial for treatment-resistant depression, n=90 at 12 weeks) can predict clinical outcomes with high (85%) accuracy. The implications of this research signal that audio recordings can be used to predict who will respond to treatment and possibly aid in helping identify who would need more support.
Measures UsedMontgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale
A ten-item diagnostic questionnaire used to measure the severity of depressive symptoms in patients with mood disorders.
