MIND2 - Dimensional Clinical, Neurophysiological, Molecular and Genetic Phenotyping Of Idiopathic Mental Illness (H-44164)



The purpose of this study is to gain a deeper understanding of the neurobiological underpinnings of mood disorders, focusing specifically on impulsivity. Impulsivity appears across many mood disorders such as: major depression, bipolar disorder, intermittent explosive disorders, and personality disorders and can hinder many parts of an individual's life. We seek to take a multi-dimensional approach in order to assess the development of these mood disorders and impulsive behaviors.
