Rasha AlQahtani Wins Regeneron ISEF Behavioral Science Award
Rasha AlQahtani won this year’s Regeneron ISEF behavioral science award for her video game tool that helps diagnose generalized anxiety disorder in adolescents! From Regeneron ISEF via Smithsonian Mag:
This research aims to overcome these challenges through embedding the mental health assessment tools inside an interactive environment via the creation of a novel, accessible, low-cost, and attractive game feature that can diagnose generalized anxiety disorder. In particular, the assessment is embedded as a dialog that includes decisions throughout the game to help gather the necessary data for accurate diagnosis.
