Pleasant / Unpleasant Feelings can be analyzed using fMRI in depressed patients using Olfactory Stimuli. Assessment of ther Depression Scale Score can be done when the analysis is focused on specific brain areas of the Limbic System. fMRI Real-Time Analysis of these patients shows low activation patterns of the reward circuit but high activations of amygdala.
