How is this possible? And above all, how can this be improved? To answer these questions, Brainclinics Diagnostics has started an international partnership with the largest Biomarker study in Depression ever conducted. In total, almost 3000 people will be examined for genetic material, brain activity and psychological variables. In the Netherlands this investigation will officially start on 1 April. The aim of this research is to arrive at biomarkers - indicators that...
