Depressive Disorders

Part of the Critical Issues in Neuropsychology book series (CINP)


Until recently, the “conventional wisdom” within the field of neuropsychology was that depression had little or no impact upon neuropsychological test performance. In many of the currently influential neuropsychology textbooks, depression is either not dealt with (e.g., Golden, 1981) or is dismissed as an insignificant variable. For example, Reitan and Wolfson (1985) state that “a severe and clinically significant degree of depression... usually seem[s] to be irrelevant to interpretation of neuropsychological test findings.” There has been a growing body of research in recent years, however, that clearly challenges this long-held belief. Studies with ability tests and neuropsychological measures with psychiatric populations have been accumulating and growing interest in this area has recently spawned a flurry of research showing that depression can have a significant impact upon neuropsychological test performance.
