This study examined the relationship between resting regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) patterns in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and specific symptom clusters derived from ratings on the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HRSD) and the Mini Mental State Examination. We hypothesized that the functional activity in frontal, parietal, anterior cingulate, basal ganglia and limbic regions would be related to specific symptom domains. Fifteen patients fulfilling DSM-IV criteria… CONTINUE READING
