Mount Sinai School of Medicine researchers presented exciting new information about depression at Neuroscience 2012, the Society for Neuroscience’s 42nd annual meeting on October 13 -17 in New Orleans.
Increasing dopamine neurons in already stressed mice elevated depression. This shows that depression may not only be caused by a chemical imbalance, but neurons misfiring.
There also seems to be some immune system involvement in depression.
