Course Description: Major depressive disorder (MDD) is associated with persistent, impaired life functioning. Past literature reveals that motivational deficits in physical and cognitive effort expenditure have not been evaluated as contributors to functional impairment in MDD. The study examined physical and cognitive effort and the assessment of associations with symptoms, cognition, and life functioning in those with MDD. Overall, researchers found that higher anhedonia severity predicted lower motivation for physical effort but not for cognitive effort. Additionally, lower cognitive effort motivation was associated with poorer life functioning even after controlling for previously established predictors of symptoms and cognitive impairment. Researchers suggest motivational deficits in MDD present different barriers for recovery depending on the type of effort that is avoided.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purposes of the study and the methods related to motivational deficits in physical and cognitive effort expenditure in those with depression as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Physical- and Cognitive-Effort-Based Decision-Making in Depression: Relationships to Symptoms and Functioning
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Consider the factors related to motivational deficits coupled with the statistical findings from the accompanying article
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the article for clarification regarding physical and cognitive effort motivation in those with depression, or for any missed questions
