To explore current developments and opportunities for using mobile technology to advance research and treatment of central nervous system (CNS) disorders, the National Academies’ Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders hosted a workshop on June 5–6, 2018. The workshop brought together a diverse group from federal research and regulatory agencies, academia, industry, and foundations, along with advocates presenting the patient point of view to discuss how to ensure that technological advances are translated into something meaningful for individuals and society as a whole. The workshop also addressed key concerns that society will have to grapple with regarding digital technologies, including privacy and data ownership.
