Computational Analysis of Spoken Language in Acute Psychosis and Mania

Objectives:
This study aimed to (1) determine the feasibility of collecting behavioral data from participants hospitalized with acute psychosis and (2) begin to evaluate the clinical information that can be computationally derived from such data.
 
Methods:
Behavioral data was collected across 99 sessions from 38 participants
recruited from an inpatient psychiatric unit. Each session started with a semi-structured interview modeled on a typical “clinical rounds” encounter and included administration of the Positive and Negative Syndrome
Scale (PANSS).
