Scientific Questions Being Studied

The specific scientific question I want to study is "does increased screen time/social media increase the risk of depression?"
This question is important because the use of technology such as phones and other electronic devices is part of our daily lives. Could this trend be contributing to the increase in depression we are seeing? If so, what is the solution?

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (mental depression)
  • Population Health
  • Social / Behavioral

Scientific Approaches

I plan on using a quantitative method for my research, and I will use datasets available through All of Us, and other resources.

Anticipated Findings

I anticipate studying and finding a possible link between screentime/social media and depression to possibly develop a way to mitigate the risk if indeed there is a linkage.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
