Summary

A study was conducted on a group of 73 patients suffering from major depressive disorder (DSMIII) compared with 120 normal subjects using a subscale of physical pleasure (Fawcett Clark pleasure capacity scale-physical pleasure, FCPCS-PP). The major depressives were significantly more anhedonic than the normals and the distribution of the FCPCS-PP scores in these subjects was unimodal.
