The aim of the present project is to establish the relationship between outcome after antidepressive drug interventions and electrophysiological (EEG/ERP) features in humans. First, we will exploit already acquired data from H. Lundbeck A/S in healthy males to establish which features are particularly sensitive to drug intervention. Next, we will investigate in a cohort of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) if the same features can predict treatment outcome and if emotional processing ERP can be used as a biomarker to predict the treatment response. Ideally, the findings in this study can provide new insights to this domain and thus advance future “personalized” and “accurate” treatment strategies for MDD.
