Project abstract: Working memory deficit is a common but often overlooked symptom in Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). As a consequence, we know little about its role in the development and maintenance of depressive psychopathology. Using working memory data from established epidemiological cohort studies and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) neuroimaging studies, I here propose to address two fundamental questions about the role of working memory function in MDD: 1) does early-life working memory deficits constitute a risk factor in later development of MDD and 2) what is the involvement of serotonergic neurotransmission in working memory function and does it differ between the healthy and depressed brain? Results from these studies will not only contribute significantly to our understanding of working memory in MDD but could also help identify new treatment targets and perhaps guide future preventative strategies in MDD.

A warm welcome to the new NRU staff members:
Junior faculty member Anjali Sankar, who will be working in BrainDrugs WP3.
Anjali holds a PhD degree in Psychological Medicine from King's College. Her research is dedicated to the study of mood disorders, both major depressive and bipolar disorders. An important focus is on identifying reliable biomarkers that can predict clinical response to treatments as well as negative outcomes such as suicide using multimodal neuroimaging techniques.
Congratulations to Hannah Eichhorn (Physics), who graduated in June and is back as Research Assistant (MoCo project).

Dr. Pernet obtained a PhD in Cognitive Neuropsychology from the University of Toulouse III in France in 2004. He was then working with Prof. J.F. Demonet and Dr. P. Celsis on neurodevelopmental disorders using MRI, functional MRI and EEG. He next obtained a post-doc fellowship from the Fyssen Foundation to work in Finland with Prof. R. Salmelin on reading using MEG. He moved to UK in 2006, working in Glasgow with Prof. B. Belin as post-doc research assistant, working on auditory (voice) processing using fMRI and EEG. He joined the Brain Research Imaging Center, Edinburgh in 2007, as fMRI lead for SINAPSE (Scottish Imaging Network A Platform for Scientific Excellence) and became Senior Research Fellow & functional imaging scientific leader for Edinburgh Imaging in 2015.
