When an elderly person presents with depression and anhedonia, and SSRIs don' t help, a closer look at root causes is the best route to effective treatment. Before ECT, a baseline MRI revealed the true source of this patient's sudden downward slide.
Decreased Resting-State Activity in the Precuneus Is Associated With Depressive Episodes in Recurrent Depression
By comparing resting-state brain activity in patients with MDD with healthy controls, these researchers were able to see differences across a wide range of neural networks. Check the scans for yourself to better understand the neural mechanism of depression relapse.
Despite the prevalence of social anxiety disorder and availability of multiple pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatment options, only a minority of affected individuals receive adequate treatment. This meta-analysis looks at neuroimaging data to compare brain changes seen with psychotherapy versus pharmacotherapy for social anxiety disorder.
