“Neuroimaging Studies of Reward Processing in Depression”
This study investigates stress-related signaling of glutamate and dopamine within the reward-processing circuit in Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), and whether they can be used to predict depressive symptoms in the future. This will be achieved through various neuroimaging tools (MRS, fMRI, PET), behavioral tasks, and a naturalistic follow-up design.
Radiation - PET Scan with Raclopride
A subsample (21 per group) will complete the PET imaging.
