This study is looking at whether cognitive control training can help alleviate the symptoms of depression. It is also investigating whether a mild form of brain stimulation called transcranial electrical stimulation can be used to boost the impact of cognitive control training. Transcranial electrical stimulation is a safe, mild and non-invasive means of stimulating nerves cells in the brain.
Participants will be provided with three weeks of daily treatment at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry research centre in Prahran. Each treatment session will involve cognitive training and mild brain stimulation and will take approximately 45 minutes. Participation in the study will also include clinical interviews and completion of some computerised activities.
