Depression treatments that are available today are the result of decades of research.

Research on the brain and reward: 

Have you been experiencing symptoms of depression or bipolar disorder that interfere with your daily life? MGH and McLean Psychiatry researchers seek volunteers for a brain imaging study to understand how people with depression and bipolar disorder respond to reward. The study includes five sessions. If eligible to participate, you can receive up to $352.25.

We are seeking right-handed individuals, 18-50 years old with no serious medical or neurological illness other than depression or bipolar disorder to participate in 5 study sessions, each lasting between 2-3.5 hours.
