Description

The project will involve a genetically-informed family design to examine the relationship between depression and cognition. The study will utilise the Generation Scotland sample (www.gen.scot) and will involve mixed-effects statistical models in ASReml-R. The project would suit someone interested in genomics and psychiatry and individuals who want to develop skills in statistical programming or genomics.

Layman's description

This project will examine whether there is a relationship between clinical depression and cognition and whether the relationship is mediated by current symptoms rather than disease liability.
