Vascular changes in the brain can impact the development and course of depression in older adults. This seminar will summarize the neurobiological factors that place Black older adults at risk for vascular depression, which is a more disabling and treatment resistant subtype of depression. Lifestyle intervention strategies for reducing racial disparities in vascular depression will also be discussed.
