Cognitive deficits in MDD are measured with general neuropsychological test batteries that evaluate general intellectual functioning, working memory, verbal learning and memory, attention and information processing speed, executive function, psychomotor performance, and global cognitive function

No cognitive measures have been specifically developed to evaluate cognitive performance in MDD
