Examining Hippocampal Volume In Older Adults With Depression

The overall prevalence of depression among the older population is around 7% and, hence, is a major health issue. Depression may be associated with global cerebral gray matter change. In particular, several structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies examined the neuro-structural correlates of depression, highlighting volume reductions in a specific brain structure called the hippocampus (HC) in patients with depression, including older adults, in comparison with healthy controls. In our study, we investigated the volume differences in the HC in...
