  • BACKGROUND Executive dysfunction and psychomotor slowing in depressed patients have been associated with poor antidepressant clinical response, but little is known about the value of neurocognitive tests for differential prediction of response. METHODS This report presents new findings for 70 depressed patients tested on neurocogntive tests before receiving treatment with a SSRI (escitalopram or citalopram), NDRI (bupropion) or dual mechanism therapy including a serotonergic agent, and for 57… CONTINUE READING
