Brain Imaging Studies of Depressive Disorders

  • Harold A. Sackeim

Part of the The Depressive Illness Series book series (DISS, volume 3)


During the last decade, our capacity to obtain in vivo measurement of brain structure and function developed rapidly. Indeed, technological advances in brain imaging often have outpaced their application to problems of psychiatry and neurology, leaving scores of issues to be addressed. This chapter provides an overview of what we have learned from initial studies of brain imaging in affective disorders.
