Depression Neurobiology Research Group

The Depression Neurobiology Research Group is led by Prof Declan McLoughlin, Research Professor of Psychiatry. We are based in the Dept of Psychiatry and the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience (TCIN). We are a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, post-doctoral research fellows, and post graduate students. Our work encompasses clinical assessment, neuropsychology, randomised controlled trials, biochemistry and molecular biology.

Our current ongoing projects include:

  • The KITE-Dep Trial: Ketamine interleaved with electroconvulsive therapy for depression, a pragmatic randomised controlled pilot trial.

  • The KARMA-DEP (2) Trial: Ketamine as an adjunctive therapy for Major Depression (2) - a randomised controlled trial.
