Seeing as you seem to be the most informed about these categories (though Noa seemed pretty familiar with them) perhaps when you've a moment to spare you could sketch out the symptoms of both, a a quick review of the last part of this thread leaves me little clearer as to the exact distinctions.

I have the impression that typical dep. is melancolic, oversleeping and undereating and that typical is perhaps the reverse however I'm not entirely certain about that and would appreciate some elaboration and explanation so I can better understand these categories.

> > It appears that older people are more likely to have typical features; that melancholic features occur about equally in both sexes; and that atypical features occur about twice as often in women as in men. (My guess is that adolescents are likelier to present with reversed vegetative signs than adults are.)
