The relation between positive and negative emotion in clinical depression

Affective bipolarity refers to a dynamical process with which negative feelings rule out the experience of positive feelings and vice versa (as typically observed in an increased negative correlation between positive and negative affect), and is considered an important perpetuating mechanism in clinical depression. With this grant proposal, I aim to pinpoint the specificity of affective bipolarity in Major Depressive Disorder, across different depressive subtypes, across various activity-related contexts and interpersonal situations, and across time.
