dc.description.abstractThe aim of this study was to investigate Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy’s (MBCT) effect on cognitive control in a sample of participants with a history of three depressive episodes or more. The study relies on the assumption that cognitive control facilitates rumination, leading to augmented depressive symptoms. The results showed increased performance by the MBCT-group on the inhibition/flexibility task on the D-KEFS Color-Word Interference Task (CWIT) compared to a waiting-list control group. These findings imply that MBCT improves cognitive control. The paper discusses how these results contribute to our understanding of the mechanisms that underlie MBCT’s effect on recurrent depression.eng
dc.description.abstractMålet med denne studien var å undersøke om Mindfulnessbasert kognitiv terapi (MBCT) førte til bedret kognitiv kontroll i et utvalg med deltakere som hadde en historie med minst tre depressive episoder. Rasjonalet for studien var en antagelse om at svekket kognitiv kontroll fasiliterer ruminering som i sin tur forsterker depressive symptomer. Studien fant at MBCT-gruppen viste signifikant forbedret prestasjon på inhibisjon/fleksibilitet-deloppgaven i D-KEFS farge-ord-interferensoppgaven. Dette resultatet tyder på at MBCT forbedrer kognitiv kontroll. Studien diskuterer sammenhengen mellom kognitiv kontroll som grunnleggende kognitiv prosess og øvelsene i MBCTs i et forsøk på å forstå effekten på tilbakevendende depresjon.eng
