I agree with you that it isn't that clear cut,
and that depression tends to be a combination of overactivation and underactivation of certain brain regions.
We don't know all the causes but, we do know that most effective antidepressants, ECT, SST, Sleep deprivation, medication, exercise etc, all seem to activate the prefrontal cortex, and tame down the limbic system, amygdala, and caudate.
