Christie MacLeod is a doctoral student in clinical psychology at McMaster University. Her clinical and research work takes place at St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton in the Women's Health Concerns Clinic and Mood Disorders Clinic. Her research aims to explore potential neural mechanisms for the sex-related difference in prevalence of depression. As women are twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression when compared to men, characterization of sex-related differences in the cerebral cortex can aid in prevention and treatment strategies tailored specifically for women.
