Project: The neurobiology of decision-making and executive functioning in the suicidal brain

project duration
01-JAN-09 – 31-DEC-10
abstract
Suicidal people have a altered pattern of activation in the orbitofrontal and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, next to executive functioning difficulties. These findings run parallel with the results found in the decision making research. In this project, fMRI and neuropsychological tests such as the Markov decision task are used to assess decision making processes and there role in suicidality.
