Abstract

This resource provides a succinct summary of cognitive deficits reported in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) with a particular focus on aspects of measurement, underlying disease pathophysiology, implications for treatment and prevention. It also provides an opportunity for clinical-based assessment of cognition and recommendations for how cognitive measurement and treatment is positioned in the management of individuals with mood disorders.
