Welcome to the AMoSS Study Website

What is the AMoSS Study? The AMoSS study ('Automated Monitoring of Symptom Severity') is a research project which aims to explore mood instability in individuals diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. We compare this to data collected from a group of healthy participants who have never experienced problematic moods. 

We explore mood instability using mood-monitoring, together with modern smartphone and “wearable” technologies, that tell us about a person’s activity patterns and physical state.

The AMoSS project is run by our clinical reseach team at the Department of Psychiatry, Warneford Hospital, Oxford OX3 7JX.

Participants are compensated for their time, travel costs, and continued participation; smartphones can be provided by the research team. More details are provided in the Participant Information Sheet, which we can send you by email or post (contact details below).

Please note that we have successfully completed recruitment of our Bipolar and Borderline Personality Disorder patient groups. However, we are still actively recruiting 'healthy control' participants (aged 30-60). Please get in touch for more information!
