Persistent depression may leave brain damaged, study finds

ANA SmartBrief | Jul 06, 2015

Patients who experience recurring major depressive disorder were found to have smaller volumes in the hippocampus of the brain, compared with patients who have had only had one episode of depression or no episodes. The findings, published in Molecular Psychiatry, also showed that patients diagnosed with depression before age 21 tended to have a smaller hippocampus. The findings underscore that serious bouts of depression can have a lasting effect on the brain, the authors said. PhysiciansBriefing.com (07/01)
