OK. I'm new to these terms, so I want to make sure I understand.

I found a definition for neurogenesis as "the formation of new neurons or nerve cells." I also found a discussion on neurotrophics that basically described them as being responsible for the growth and maintenance of neurons -- and possibly for the regrowth of damaged neurons. I was less lucky finding a definition for neuroprotective, though I could take some guesses.

Anyway, your original remark was that antidepressants that promote neurogenesis are much more helpfull in the long run. In your opinion then, do mood stabilizers (neuroprotective) and antidepressants (neurotrophic) both promote neurogenesis?
