Episodic memory impairment is considered to be a core cognitive deficit of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and has motivated a line of research investigating the role of the amygdala and the hippocampus in depression. While functional neuroimaging studies have focused on memory for emotional but not for neutral stimuli, in order to probe amygdala function, structural imaging studies have tied episodic memory to hippocampal function. We therefore investigated the neural correlates of episodic… CONTINUE READING
