Thank you so much, Margaret, and good question. We will measure the dispositional tendency to experience awe before the treatment using the Dispositional Positive Emotion Scale (DPES) - Awe subscale and a scale used by UC Berkeley in their recent study looking at the relationship between awe and reduced inflammatory markers to measure awe post treatment. We will measure depression pre and post treatment using the Montgomery Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS).
