Neuroimaging Predictors of Antidepressant Treatment Outcome
Drug: Fast acting antidepressant-like treatment. administered i.v. during the fMRI scanning session
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
- Blood-oxygen-level dependent (BOLD) responses during the Real-Time Neurofeedback Task. [ Time Frame: BOLD responses will be assessed at baseline and depression severity will be assessed at baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Depression severity assessed with several depressive questionnaires. [ Time Frame: Every two weeks until the end of the trial (16 weeks total), or until the participants leave the study. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Neuropsychological functioning of patients with depression [ Time Frame: At baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Affect processing: Emotional Words Task and Facial Emotion Perception test. Attention and Inhibitory Control: Parametric Go/NoGo, Trail Making test and the Stroop Color Word test .
Inferential Reasoning (including cost-benefit analysis): Delayed Discounting of Money Rewards, Iowa Gambling Task, Common Difference effect gambling task and the WCST.
- BDNF Val66Met single nucleotide polymorphism(SNP)genotyping [ Time Frame: At baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]5ml of blood drawn per participants will be used for genotyping
