Project description

Depression is a major mental health problem and current treatments are frequently insufficiently effective. Based on insights on positive emotions obtained through an ongoing GOA (ending December 2015) we propose a new GOA project to develop and test innovative ways to combine psychological interventions with neurostimulation targeting mechanisms involved in anhedonia and resilience, to increase sustainable well-being in depression.
