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.”
