Neuroimaging of Nicotine Dependence, Depression and Emotion Regulation Save

Date Added
February 19th, 2013
PRO Number
Pro00022668
Researcher
Brett Froeliger
Keywords
Depression, Smoking
Summary

Cigarette smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and disability in the U.S. and individuals with elevated depression symptoms or clinically diagnosed major depressive disorder (MDD) smoke at significantly higher rates than non-depressed individuals. Elevated negative affect and affective dysregulated emotional control may contribute to greater smoking among individuals with MDD. The proposed research will shed new light on the neural mechanisms that govern associations between depression and smoking. Despite known and costly associations between these factors, little is known regarding their co-occurrence and such information will provide a foundation for the development of novel and more effective interventions. We are recruiting adult smokers and nonsmokers, and individuals with or without depression, ages 18 and older to participate.
