Aims of the study

In this study we will look at whether we can find differences in the way social knowledge is stored in people with or without a history of depression. If you have had depression before, we will ask you to participate in follow-up interviews over 14 months to see whether our imaging measures can predict whether you remain stable or get another episode of depression over this period. This project aims to include 120 men and women who have previously suffered with depression, and 60 people who have never had depression.

This project is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and has been approved by South Manchester Research Ethics Committee, Ref. 07/H1003/194.
