Can passive measurement of physiological distress help better predict suicidal thinking?

There has been growing interest in using wearable physiological monitors to passively detect the signals of distress (i.e., increases in autonomic arousal measured through increased electrodermal activity [EDA]) that may be imminently associated with suicidal thoughts. Before using these monitors in advanced applications such as creating suicide risk detection algorithms or just-in-time interventions, several preliminary […]

Parasuicide as an emotion regulation behavior.

Physiological arousal and subjective appraisal were compared between controls and participants with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), in the context of a personally relevant imagery: Nonsuicidal self injury, suicide attempt, and stressful event. BPD participants were more aroused compared to controls at resting state. BPD also exhibited less emotional activities during the suicide attempt and self-harm […]
