This course is a deeply resourced, strong synthesis of the research regarding anti-depressant use with elderly populations. As such, it relies on multiple tables, various analysis procedures, has a focus on a necessarily narrow clinical population, and contains much information regarding the pros and cons of various experimental designs.
