Study: Depression can alter brain structure
Study: Depression can alter brain structure

Nowadays depression is common to youth or teenagers and the recent study says depression could result in changes to the structure of a key component of the brain.

"This study uses data from the largest single sample published to date and shows that people with depression have changes in the white matter wiring of their brain," said Heather Whalley, a senior research fellow at the University of Edinburgh.

"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.

"Our next steps will be to look at how the absence of changes in the brain relates to better protection from distress and low mood," said Whalley.
