Sensitivity to the environment: Risk and resilience for adolescent depression

Grant number: 1007716 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015



Depression is among the leading causes of disability and disease burden throughout the world. Little is known about how biological and environmental factors interact to cause adolescent depression; even less is known about what factors might help to prevent it. This project aims to investigate how the brain and the environment interact to predict risk and resilience for depression in adolescence. This research will ultimately help in the detection and treatment of adolescent depression.
