Disrupted posterior cingulate-amygdala connectivity in postpartum depressed women as measured with resting BOLD fMRI.


Disengagement of emotion regulation circuits was previously shown in depressed mothers and was hypothesized to underlie the impaired maternal-infant sensitivity described in postpartum depression (PPD). We hypothesized similarly reduced resting-state functional connectivity in default mode network (DMN) regions involved in social cognition in PPD. Resting… (More)
