Mindful Self-Regulation fMRI Study (MindfulPCfMRI)


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to investigate changes in functional neural activation during self-regulation tasks before compared to after the Mindfulness Training for Primary Care intervention (see MINDFUL-PC (Phase 3) clinical trial). The study will also look at whether chronic disease self-management action plan initiation and successful engagement of self-report and behavioral self-regulation targets relates to the observed brain activation changes after compared to before the mindfulness intervention.

Detailed Study Description

The investigators will investigate the effects of MTPC on pre/post changes in neural function with self-regulation target engagement, using self-appraisal, cuff pain and pain anticipation, and interoceptive attention fMRI tasks among primary care patients with an anxiety or depressive disorder. Primary outcome for this study is evaluating the changes in OFC activation during self-criticism blocks within a self-appraisal fMRI task. Secondary outcomes include changes in activation during self-appraisal fMRI task, pain regulation task, and interoceptive attention task, and the relationship of these targets with medical regimen adherence.
