A third test measured executive functioning, or how the brain uses memories to plan actions, pay attention and inhibit inappropriate behavior. Researchers determined whether an individual was depressed using a 9-question form patients filled out themselves. More than 2,600 people completed the tests at all three time points. Sixty-two percent of these never had scores indicating depression.
