Memory impairment in young women at increased risk of depression: influence of cortisol and 5-HTT genotype
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractMemory deficits are common in depressed patients and may persist after recovery. The aim of the present study was to determine whether memory impairments were present in young women at increased familial risk of depression and whether memory performance was related either to cortisol secretion or to allelic variation in the promoter region of the serotonin transporter gene (5-HTT).
