Insufficient outcomes amongst adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) provide the impetus to identify and refine therapeutic targets that are most critical to outcome from patient, provider, and societal perspectives. Towards this aim, a pivotal shift towards the transnosological domain, cognition, is occurring in the study of MDD and other brain(More)
BACKGROUND Bipolar disorder (BD) has been associated with cognitive impairment during depressed, manic and euthymic periods. Inflammation has been shown to be involved in the pathophysiology of BD and cognitive impairment. METHODS For this systematic review, the MEDLINE/PubMed, Embase, Google Scholar and ClinicalTrials.gov databases were searched for(More)
INTRODUCTION Vortioxetine is a pharmacodynamically novel antidepressant that exerts effects on various neurotransmitters including serotonin, noradrenaline, dopamine, glutamate, histamine and acetylcholine. Its efficacy in the symptomatic management of major depressive disorder (MDD) has been established in several short- and long-term trials. Vortioxetine(More)
Available evidence indicates that a single, low-dose administration of ketamine is a robust, rapid-onset intervention capable of mitigating depressive symptoms in adults with treatment-resistant mood disorders. Additional evidence also suggests that ketamine may offer antisuicide effects. Herein, we propose that the antidepressant effects reported with(More)
A post hoc analysis was conducted using data from participants (N=631) with a DSM-IV-TR defined diagnosis of major depressive disorder (MDD) or bipolar disorder (BD) who were enrolled in the International Mood Disorders Collaborative Project (IMDCP) between January 2008 and July 2013. It was determined that 20.6% of adults with mood disorders as part of the(More)
BACKGROUND Cognitive deficits differentially affect individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and mood disorders. Accumulating evidence implicates disturbances in metabolism as salient to cognitive function. Thus, the mitigation of metabolic disturbances may preserve or ameliorate cognitive function. This review aims to evaluate available evidence(More)
BACKGROUND Cognitive dysfunction is common in major depressive disorder (MDD) and a critical determinant of health outcome. Anhedonia is a criterion item toward the diagnosis of a major depressive episode (MDE) and a well-characterized domain in MDD. We sought to determine the extent to which variability in self-reported cognitive function correlates with(More)
