Depression can occur at any stage in life, including older age. Depression that occurs in later life can pose distinct challenges, particularly with regard to treatment. Although treatment response to medication can take up to 8 weeks, neuroimaging data during the initiation of medication may help predict who will respond to medication. This research program is designed to identify brain responses to medication and see how they predict remission of depressive symptoms.
