    Information Sampling in Depression

    About the project

    In this project, we aim to take a closer look at the way in which information is being sampled and integrated in individuals suffering from or at risk for depression. Since human beings are only able to perceive and process a limited amount of information, we have evolved to sample parts of information instead and attempt to draw accurate and workable conclusions based on the sample available to us. We have reason, however, to think that this process may be affected in depression, and aim to find out how exactly using methods such as behavioural computational modeling.
