Examining Maternal Reward Responsiveness and the Intergenerational Risk for Depression

Children of depressed mothers are at high risk for developing depression, particularly as youth age into adolescence, yet relatively little is known about the mechanism underlying risk for depression in youth with depressed mothers. The present study examines maternal reward responsiveness, measured across neurophysiological, behavioral, and self-report measures as a marker of depression in mothers of adolescents. Associations between maternal reward responsiveness and parenting difficulties often associated with maternal depression, as well as adolescent functioning will be examined, to explore the clinical impact of maternal reward responsiveness on the intergenerational transmission of depression.
