Research: Measurement in Part of Brain May Indicate Depression Risk


According to researchers at Columbia University Medical Center, a network of brain regions known as the default mode network (DMN) was found to have stronger connections in adults and children with a high risk of depression.

Increased DMN connectivity, therefore, is a potential biomarker, indicating a risk of developing major depressive disorder (MDD).

"These findings suggest that looking at activity in the DMN may offer an objective method of identifying people who are at risk of developing major depression," Dr. Myrna Weissman says.
