Depression and its treatment

Excellent video explaining depression from a neurobiological perspective.

Around one in every 10 people will suffer from depression. Brain regions that control mood are often disrupted in depression. Antidepressant drugs or behavioral therapy can offer some relief. By understanding the brain better, our ability to treat depression should also get a boost.

Watch the video to learn about the neural circuits affected in depression, and the molecular and cellular changes that might hold the key to treating it. Created by the editors at Nature Neuroscience: http://www.nature.com/neuro/index.html
