James - I see the NT thing as a side effect (coincidental effect? result?) of what is/are the true malfunction(s) we call depression. Adding back NTs to the system (however we do it) seems to resolve some of the "symptoms" of depression. As for Tx-resistant depression, I feel that, even though there may be a resulting lack of NTs in the synaptic gap, adding the appropriate NT does not circumvent the malfunction to enough (or any) extent in these instances.

We get back to that old problem (of which we have talked of, in the past) of the resulting symptoms of what we call "depression" are arrived at via multiple, independent pathways. We are still "splicing wires" in all of our treatments of any mental disorder, and we are doing it with "ice" (ie. none of our treatments, in themselves, are cures, therefore we must keep adding "ice" to the spliced wires, to replace the "melted ice", so that the symptoms do not return (as readily).

Just a thought - Cam
