The purpose of this study is to determine whether giving gaze-contingent feedback is an effective attention modification procedure, helping in the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)


The study examines giving depressive participants gaze-contingent feedback as a novel attention training procedure. Half of the participants will receive contingent feedback while the other half would receive non-contingent "placebo" feedback.
