Reduced Brain Gray Matter Volume in Patients With First-Episode Major Depressive Disorder: A Quantitative Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The present meta-analysis revealed that structural abnormalities in the fronto-striatal-limbic andFronto-parietal networks are essential characteristics in first-episode MDD patients, which may become a potential target for clinical intervention.
Brain grey matter abnormalities in medication-free patients with major depressive disorder: a meta-analysis
Background Because cerebral morphological abnormalities in major depressive disorder (MDD) may be modulated by antidepressant treatment, inclusion of medicated patients may have biased previous

Gray Matter Reduction in Currently Depressed Patients of Major Depressive Disorder: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The meta-analysis in the present study showed that the gray matter reduction not only exists in the frontal lobe and the hippocampus of patients with cMDD as reported in previous studies, but also exists inThe temporal lobe, which may also be important in the pathophysiology basis of MDD.
Grey matter volume abnormalities in patients with bipolar I depressive disorder and unipolar depressive disorder: a voxel-based morphometry study
TLDR
The results of the study suggest that decreased grey matter volume of the right inferior frontal gyrus is a common abnormality in BP1 and UD, and decreasedgrey matter volume in the right middle cingulate gyrus may be specific to BP1.
Insular and Hippocampal Gray Matter Volume Reductions in Patients with Major Depressive Disorder
TLDR
The anterior insula gray matter structure appears to be strongly affected in major depressive disorder and might play an important role in the neurobiology of depression.
Reduced grey matter volume in frontal and temporal areas in depression: contributions from voxel-based morphometry study
TLDR
Using VBM the present study was able to replicate decreases in GM volume restricted to frontal and temporal regions in patients with mood disorders, mainly major depression, compared with healthy controls.
Reduced gray matter volume in the anterior cingulate, orbitofrontal cortex and thalamus as a function of mild depressive symptoms: a voxel-based morphometric analysis
TLDR
Low gray matter volume in theoretically important brain regions can be observed even in a sample that does not meet DSM criteria for MDD, but who nevertheless report relatively elevated levels of depressive symptoms, highlighting the need for additional research using dimensional conceptual and analytic approaches, as well as further investigation of subclinical populations.

Voxel-wise meta-analysis of grey matter changes in obsessive-compulsive disorder.
TLDR
The results support a dorsal prefrontal-striatal model of the disorder and raise the question of whether functional alterations in other brain regions commonly associated with OCD, such as the orbitofrontal cortex, may reflect secondary compensatory strategies.
Meta-analytical comparison of voxel-based morphometry studies in obsessive-compulsive disorder vs other anxiety disorders.
TLDR
The meta-analysis consistently revealed common as well as distinct neural substrates in OCD and other anxiety disorders, which have implications for the current debate surrounding the classification of OCD in the DSM-V.
Brain volume abnormalities in major depressive disorder: A meta‐analysis of magnetic resonance imaging studies
TLDR
This is the first comprehensive meta‐analysis in major depressive disorder demonstrating structural brain abnormalities, particularly in those brain areas that are involved in emotion processing and stress‐regulation.
