Neural processing of reward and loss in girls at risk for major depression
RESULTS: While anticipating gains, high-risk participants showed less activation than did their low-risk counterparts in the putamen and left insula but showed greater activation in the right insula. When receiving punishment, high-risk participants showed greater activation in the dorsal anterior cingulate gyrus than did low-risk participants, who showed greater activation in the caudate and putamen.
Putamen = reward assessment .Less activated if your’e downbeat.
ACC = conflict resolution in loss situations = higher activation in downbeats because they will exaggerate losses ?
Role of Left Insula ??
