Novel approaches to characterize depressive symptoms and cognitive outcomes
Chicago, IL, United States
The prevalence of depression and cognitive impairment is high among HIV-infected men who have sex with men, the result of numerous psychosocial and HIV disease factors. Little is known, however, about the long-term history of their development and whether cumulative effects of social and biological stressors determine an individual’s trajectory of depressive symptoms and subsequent cognitive decline. This study will characterize the inter-relationships between life-course psychosocial factors and longitudinal patterns of depressive symptoms, cognitive processing speed, executive function, and self-perceived memory.
