The UW Department of Psychiatry is recruiting individuals currently experiencing depression for a research study investigating brain changes that occur while taking hydrocortisone (which is identical to the hormone cortisol) or a placebo. Eligible participants will be ages 18-60, in good health and not currently receiving medication for depression. Brain activity will be measured using a brain scanning technique (fMRI). This study will involve five sessions including two brain scans. All clinic visits and procedures associated with the research are provided at no cost. Subjects may be compensated up to $300 for completion of the study. Symptoms of depression include: - Fatigue - Noticeable Change in Appetite - Feelings of guilt - Difficulty concentrating - Difficulty sleeping - Sadness - Lack of enjoyment for things you used to enjoy If you answered ?yes? to most of the above symptoms, you may be eligible to participate.
