Revising the diagnosis of depression using causal and descriptive ontologies

There is pressing need to accurately and meaningfully capture depression in clinical practice. However, despite being readily available for study by virtue of its seeming ubiquity, researchers have struggled to provide significant advances that inform our understanding of depression and improve its clinical management.

In this lecture, I will discuss how we should perhaps redefine depression and in doing so propose an approach that is likely to provide a more precise and meaningful diagnosis.
