Title: Functional neuroimaging of intrinsic hemodynamic networks in bipolar disorder, unipolar depressive disorder, and healthy controls: Finding a biomarker for bipolarity.

Description: By comparing people with depressive symptoms, we hope to learn more about how to treat them effectively. The purpose of this study is to look at how brain networks function in healthy people and people who have depression from different kinds of mood disorders and to see if we can use these differences to distinguish between disorders that cause depression and, therefore, determine the best treatment.
