Cerebral metabolic patterns in untreated postmenopausal women with major depressive disorder PSYCHIATRY RESEARCH-NEUROIMAGING Rasgon, N. L., Kenna, H. A., Geist, C., Small, G., Silverman, D. 2008; 164 (1): 77-80
Cerebral metabolic rates were assessed using [(18)F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in six naturally postmenopausal women with untreated unipolar depression and 11 matched controls. All subjects were hormone therapy-naive and medication-free. Findings include hypermetabolism in the middle frontal gyrus and Broca regions, and hypometabolism in the pons among depressed compared with non-depressed women.
