Depression Can Change the Wiring Inside the Brain
Scientists from the University of Edinburgh, UK, found a link between depression and the structure of white matter in the brain, areas that are responsible for connecting gray matter and making sure that emotions and thoughts are properly processed.
The study used data from 3,461 adults taken from the largest single sample published to date. The study shows that people with depression have changes in the white matter wiring the brain.
Heather Whalley, one of the team, says: “There is an urgent need to provide treatment for depression and an improved understanding of its mechanisms will give us a better chance of developing new and more effective methods of treatment.”
