Summary of "Response to ostracism in patients with chronic depression, episodic depression and borderline personality disorder a study using Cyberball."

Social exclusion (ostracism) can lead to interactional frustration and may play an important role as trigger and symptom amplifier in affective disorders. To investigate immediate emotional and behavioral reactions as well as coping, social exclusion can be mimicked in experimental situations, e.g. in the Cyberball paradigm, a virtual ball tossing game which is well established in social psychology. The present cross-diagnostic study compares the responses to social exclusion in patients with chronic depression (CD), episodic depression (ED) and borderline personality disorder (BPD) in comparison to a healthy control group.
