Abstract/OtherAbstract:
With age, increasing biological constraints on functioning are often aggravated by increases in multimorbidity. These effects, however, not only have an impact on somatic, but also psychological processes. In geriatric depression, for instance, there are both effects of recurrent depressive episodes on the neurobiology of the disorder as well as effects of cardiovascular comorbidity that interact with brain areas associated with the perception and regulation of emotions. These biobehavioral interactions have strong implications for both the differential diagnosis and treatment of geriatric depression.
