This cross-sectional, case-control study invested the attention deficit in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) by the Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA), a computerized, objective, neuropsychological test that measures a person’s sustained and selective attention. TOVA could detect the attentional deficit of MDD patients effectively.
