Introduction stipend to Vibeke Dam

Congratulations to Vibeke Dam who has been granted one year introduction stipend from the Research Council at Rigshospitalet for the project 'Affective and social cognition as neurocognitive predictors of antidepressant treatment response'.

This 1-year project takes advantage of data from a large longitudinal study investigating potential neurocognitive and neurobiological predictors of response to standard antidepressant treatment in MDD. The proposed project has two parts:
Part 1. Aim: To validate and implement the novel EMOTICOM test battery as a research and clinical assessment tool for affective and social cognition.
Part 2. Aim: To determine baseline differences in affective and social cognition outcomes assessed with the EMOTICOM between MDD patients and healthy individuals.
