Diagnostic Imaging of Affective Disorders using Emotion Processing (DIADE)

This project concerns the diagnosis of major depressive disorder (MDD) and bipolar disorder (BD). Early differentiation of MDD and BD is very important, but questionnaires or interviews do not adequately differentiate between these disorders. We investigate the value of fMRI as additional diagnostic instrument, by directly comparing emotion regulation processes in unmedicated MDD and BD patients versus HC.
