Disturbances in cognition functioning are a central feature of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD).

From previous empirical research, we know that changes in both affective and non-affective cognitive processes are likely critical in the mechanism of action of Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) and that they may even be potential predictive markers of treatment response.

Based on data from a large-scale longitudinal study in depressed patients, this talk will focus on exploring the pattern of cognitive disturbances in depression as well as discuss treatment related changes that may provide insight into the role of cognition in depression.
