With your help, our acclaimed Depression Task Force of neuroscientists has been working relentlessly to discover what is at the very core of depression. The fact that they are collaborating and sharing information via the HDRF Data Center is one of the reasons they are achieving results with their HDRF-funded research grants.
Their research broke new ground in 2014, opening up pathways to find new and better anti-depressants in the year ahead.
2014 Research Highlights Include:
Combined, in 2014 the seven neuroscientists of the Depression Task Force published their findings in over a dozen articles in major publications such as Scientific American, Nature, Science, Biological Psychiatry and Molecular Psychiatry.
The Depression Task Force: an outstanding collaboration of world-acclaimed neuroscientists.

At a time when federal funds are shrinking and major drug companies are withdrawing from brain research, HDRF answers an urgent need for leadership in the field.
The brilliant findings of the Depression Task Force point to a new direction in the way we view, diagnose, and treat depression and related mood disorders such as bipolar disorder, anxiety, and postpartum depression.
We look forward to sharing critical new developments in the year ahead. Together we can make breakthrough research possible in the last frontier of medicine – the mind and brain.
