SPECIFIC AIMS Aim 1. To define baseline regional glucose metabolic patterns (measured using FDG PET) associated with differential clinical remission to each of two well-established, randomly delivered first-line antidepressant treatments—the SSRI escitalopram (s-CIT) or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with cross-over treatment for non-remitters (sequential course of treatment model).
Aim 2. To define metabolic change patterns, occurring early in the course of both s-CIT and CBT, associated with successful and unsuccessful clinical remission to each intervention.
