Looking for volunteers for our study looking at reproductive depression!

Our study aims to examine the possibility that some womens' brains are more sensitive to fluctuation in sex hormones (eg. Oestrogen and Progesterone) than other women. In some women this sensitivity might make them more likely to suffer from depression at time of hormonal changes, such as postnatally.

We are including right-handed women who have suffered from depression or post-natal depression in the past (currently well), and who have reguarly-ish periods. Unfortunately, we can't include anyone who's currently taking any medication (anti-depressants/anti-psychotics) or who are on any contraceptives.
