age, educational attainment, and HDRS
score) given that two of these groups were too small in size required for parametric analysis.
A significant relationship was found between the total scores of TMQ and HDRS
Total scores and scores of suicide item in HDRS
were compared between the patients with and without suicide attempt and no statistically significant difference was found between the two groups in the HDRS
total scores (p>.
Additionally, after the ten patients received 16 weeks of active stimulation, HDRS
scores improved by an average of 27% from baseline and the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS; another established scale used to rate the severity of a patient's depression) scores improved by 31% from baseline.
Treatment response was defined as at least a 50% reduction in symptoms from baseline and a score of 8 or less on the HDRS
There was no difference between the groups before treatment according to the HDRS
scores (Table 1).
In this study, the HDRS
was applied to evaluate the depression status before administering the cognitive tests and the patients with depression were excluded from the study.
was adapted for use in Turkish speaking patients with established validity and reliability (15).
The final measure of the treatment outcome was diagnosis specific scales such as HDRS
, CDI, YMRS, PANSS and Y-BOCS.
Pearson correlation test was used to assess the relationships between WHOQOL-BREF and HDRS
and HARS scores after 8 weeks of the therapy.
Patients were rated on HDRS
(35) and YMRS (36) to assess remission and to evaluate the severity of residual psychopathology.
Patients were divided into high and low depression severity, with a score over 8 on the CES-D and 16 on the HDRS
putting the participant into the high-severity category.
