> I belive that the brain chemical called actycholine controls the emotion of depression.Lithium and SSRI drugs inhibit the rellease of this brain chemical and it is known that high levels of actycholine are associated with depression and low levls with mania.The left amygdala and the right forebrain fire away like mad when a person is depressed.Depression is not like of brain activity just the wrong kind.The left amygdala fires away when one meditates.SSRI drugs inhibit the release of dopamine and noreheprine .How would that stop depression?Serotonin inhibts brain cell fireing .Xanax helps depression .Why?


Dude, I gave you an advice to read pubmed articles before you start posting things like that. The whole post is not correct (well except that xanax helps depression,but not via "inhibition of brain cell fireing") because depression cannot be categorized as ONE CHEMICAL IMBALANCE thing. There are many types of depressions - involving different brain chemicals. Sometimes just one (like with me:dopamine), sometimes few. The chemicals I'm talking about are dopamine, serotonine, norepinephrine, gaba, acetylcholine, natural opiates (endorphines etc.). From up-to-date research it looks like there is no such thing as one kind of "depression", but many different types of depressions.
