Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. emotion recognition [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    After viewing a video, participants will be asked to judge the person's attitude in the video. Through this paradigm, investigators could test emotional bias in social interaction in depressive patients.

  2. resting state [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    In this part, investigators basically want to test the automatic neural activity for depressive patients while they are resting.

  3. self-reflection [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Participants will be asked to judge the discrepancy between actual self and ideal self.

  4. response to negative stimuli [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    investigators used face-matching task to measure their response to negative stimuli. The participants will be asked to detect the identical face with same emotion.

  5. structure [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Investigators scanned structural images to detect the difference between clinical population and healthy population.

  6. white matter [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Investigators scanned DTI to detect the difference between clinical population and healthy population.
