Timely and authoritative, this unique volume focuses on neurocognitive aspects of depression and their implications for assessment, evaluation, clinical management, and research. Experts in the field explore the impact of depression on executive function, learning and memory, working memory, and other critical capacities, and present cutting-edge assessment tools and procedures. The neurocognitive effects of widely used antidepressant treatments are reviewed, from psychotropic medications and evidence-based psychotherapies to established and emerging neuromodulation technologies. Practical aspects of working with adults across the lifespan with depression are addressed, including ways to strengthen treatment engagement and adherence, and to incorporate cultural considerations.


“A masterpiece—I anticipate that this book will quickly be adopted as an authoritative, comprehensive, and essential resource for behavioral health clinicians and scientists. The book is well written, highly informed, and accessible. Chapters take the reader on a journey that encompasses the clinical conceptualization and expression of depression and associated neurocognitive disorders, the neurobiology of these disorders, and the broad array of therapeutic options and approaches. I quite literally could not put this book down, and will recommend it to my colleagues and students as a 'go-to' resource when diagnosing and treating patients with mood disorders.”

—Kathleen A. Welsh-Bohmer, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University School of Medicine

“This book leaves no stone unturned. With exquisite depth and extraordinary breadth, it seamlessly integrates knowledge from neuropsychology, psychiatry, and cognitive neuroscience. The impressive slate of contributors cover all aspects of depression—from cultural influences to neurobiological underpinnings; from theoretical perspectives to behavioral, medical, and neurocognitive presentations; and from assessment methods to traditional and experimental treatments. Chapters are well organized and read effortlessly, while providing a wealth of relevant and useful information. All healthcare providers who work with adults with depression will appreciate this book, not only as a reference guide, but also as an inspiration for approaching this perennial disorder comprehensively, innovatively, and with compassion.”

—Yana Suchy, PhD, ABPP-CN, Department of Psychology, University of Utah

“This is a tour-de-force examination of the neurocognitive dysfunctions of depression, written by a 'dream team' of distinguished scientists. The book is unique in providing a sophisticated, in-depth view of the most recent neurobiological and clinical findings on depression with a clarity that makes them accessible to investigators and clinicians. Beyond dissecting the neurocognitive origins of depression, the book offers a comprehensive account of psychosocial and biological treatments that makes it an exceptional guide for students and for physicians, psychologists, and other professionals encountering depression.”

—George S. Alexopoulos, MD, S. P. Tobin and A. M. Cooper Professor of Psychiatry and Director, Weill Cornell Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medicine
