Semantic Dimensions of Depression and Personality

We are looking for participants for a research project on linguistic processing in the brain and depression.

We are looking for participants who have been diagnosed with depression, and participants who do not have depression, in the age group of 18-35 years. The experiment involves performing a simple linguistic task while having a brain scan performed with MRI. It takes place at Aarhus University Hospital and lasts approx. 1.5 hours. The project takes place during August and September, and you choose which day and time suits you best. Of course, compensation is paid for participation. Feel free to contact me for more information.
