Inside the Research

Question: Can brain function and decision-making tell us about suicide?

Strategy: Young adults with depression, with and without a suicide attempt, unaffected first-degree relatives of individuals with suicide attempts and a healthy comparison group will complete a decision-making task during an fMRI brain scan.

Impact: Understanding brain circuitry informs novel treatments.
