The overall goal is to understand the fundamental neural mechanisms underlying pleasure, in order to increase our understanding and potential treatment of anhedonia, as expressed in common affective disorders such as post-natal depression. We try to accomplish this to through the study of normal, neuropsychiatric and clinical populations using converging neuroimaging methods such as magnetoencephalography (MEG) and deep brain stimulation (DBS) combined with functional MRI, PET and DTI.
