PREDICTING TREATMENT RESPONSE IN YOUTH DEPRESSION WITH BRAIN IMAGING
Grant number: 1064643 | Funding period: 2014 - 2018
Depression is the single greatest cause of disability and morbidity in young people. In order to reduce its substantial burden on individuals and society, there is a need to optimise the early provision of existing treatments. In this study, we will use cutting-edge neuroimaging technology to identify “biomarkers” in the brain that will help to more accurately determine which available treatments are likely to be most effective and safe for an individual patient.
