Study seeks subjects with depression

People ages 18-35 who have been diagnosed with major depressive disorder are needed for a one-to-two-hour research study exploring how decision making is affected by mood symptoms. Participants will do a variety of skilled tasks testing their decision making and their willingness to exert effort by squeezing a hand-grip dynamo-meter and then performing the tasks to earn monetary rewards.
