Individuals with MDD exhibit deficits across multiple cognitive domains, including attention, psychomotor speed, verbal learning and memory as well as executive function.

Deficits are evident early in the illness and persist during euthymic states.

MDD is a risk factor for and a prodrome to MCI and dementing disorders.
