WHAT HAPPENS IN THE BRAIN • Depression may be caused by episodic misfiring of areas of the left frontal lobe and the left temporal lobe as a result of genetic, environmental, social, or physiological factors. • That conclusion coincides with clinical observations that stroke patients are at greater risk for depression if the stroke is on the left side of the brain, especially in the left frontal lobe.

  • 13. DISTRIBUTION OF MUSCARINIC RECEPTORS IN THE DEPRESSED BRAIN • Muscarinic receptors are G protein- coupled acetylcholi ne receptors found in the plasma membrane s of certain neurons and other cells.
  • 14. BIBLIOGRAPHY *Ainsworth, P. (2000). Understanding Depression. Jackson: University Press of Mississippi. There are theories to depression since a main cause has not been verified. The brain triggers off different moods and sends them to our body to make us react to things in different ways. Our brains all work differently and heredity may be a cause to our brain reactions. Mondimore, F. M. (2006). Depression, The Mood Disease. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press. Depression is serious and can be treated as a disease. Depression can cause a person to act a totally different way then they were before. Reinberg, S. (2012). Depression Hippocampal Volume Loss. HealthDay Reporter, 2. Depression can become a disorder in the brain. Depression disorders are most likely in teens from the age of 13-18. The Hippocampus plays a role in the body which it responds to stress. *Wayne Katon, E. L. (2008). The Depression Helpbook. Boulder: Bull Publishing Company. There are plenty of explanations and facts on how depression may come about in the brain. Medications are given out to help people who are depressed.
