Next Steps in the Study of Reward Responsiveness and Depression Risk

 

This talk will integrate multiple measures and domains to advance understanding of reward responsiveness in the development of depression. I will review previous literature indicating that blunted reward responsiveness is apparent in children at risk for depression and prospectively predicts increases in depressive symptoms into adolescence. I will then present recent data testing unique effects of neurophysiological and self-report measures in predicting depressive symptoms in youth, and exploring associations between depressive symptoms and alterations in both social and monetary reward responsiveness. Finally, future directions and implications for early intervention will be discussed.
