Executive functioning is reported to be deficient in depression. In this pilot study, functional alterations in MDD patients and their association with mental flexibility and depression severity, particularly within the executive control network, are investigated. Our data contribute to a better understanding of the neurobiological signatures of depression. Further investigation in this area may lead to an improvement in the diagnosis and treatment of MDD patients.
