Abstract

Computerized experience-sampling method comprising a mobile-based system that collects psychophysiological data appears to be a very promising assessment approach to investigate the real-time fluctuation of experience in daily life in order to detect stressful events. At this purpose, we developed PsychLog (http://sourceforge.net/projects/psychlog/) a free open-source mobile experience sampling platform that allows psychophysiological data to be collected, aggregated, visualized and collated into reports. Results showed a good classification of relaxing and stressful events, defining the two groups with psychological analysis and verifying the discrimination with physiological measures. Our innovative approach offers to researchers and clinicians new effective opportunities to assess and treat psychological stress in daily-life environments.
