Introduction
Epidemiology and neurobiology of panic disorder subtypes. We aim to further delineate PD subtypes with regard to predisposing factors, demographic and clinical characteristics, co-morbidity, and long-term prognosis. Thus, the project will consist of two parts/ (1) a longitudinal cohort study, based on data from the Netherlands Study on Depression and Anxiety (NESDA) and (2) a cross-sectional neurobiological study (Imaging, HPA).
