Official Title: Randomized, Observer-blind, Placebo-controlled, Four-way Cross-over Study to Study the Ability of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) of the Brain to Detect and Characterize the Effects of Single Doses of a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (Escitalopram [Lexapro]), a Dopamine

Further study details as provided by Hoffmann-La Roche:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the ability of fMRI to detect and characterize the effect of the three drugs on brain activity at rest and during emotional stimuli [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the ability of other behavioural paradigms/scales to detect drug effects [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To correlate the fMRI measures with the clinical/behavioral measures [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To investigate the safety of single doses of RO4917523 in healthy volunteers [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
