Adults Age 60 or Older Needed for Paid Research Study!

This study is examining why people experience another episode of depression after successful treatment. We hope to determine what clinical, social, and biological factors predict future depressive episodes or may be warning signs of the return of depression.

We are looking to enroll three types of people: people who are currently depressed, people who were recently depressed but now have an improvement in symptoms, and people who have never been depressed.

You may be eligible for this study if you:

  • Are 60 years old or older
  • Categorize yourself in the currently depressed, recently depressed but now have an improvement in symptoms, or never depressed category
  • Have no other mental health problems, other than anxiety
  • Are able to have an MRI scan

Depending on which category you fit into as a participant, you can be enrolled in either our longitudinal phase or an initial treatment phase plus a longitudinal phase.

  • Participants in the initial treatment phase will be enrolled for 8-20 weeks.
  • Participants in our longitudinal phase will be enrolled for 2 years.


Participants will be compensated for their time.
