Impaired hedonic capacity in major depressive disorder: Impact on affiliative behaviors

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (3):362-363 (2005)
Research on the neurobiology and psychosocial features of Major Depressive Disorder has the ability to extend our understanding of affiliative behavior. In depression, decreased hedonic capacity and hypoactivity in dopaminergic and prefrontal circuitries may decrease the ability to experience affiliative relationships as rewarding. We suggest that neurobiological research on depression can provide a test case for theoretical models of affiliation.
