Does cortisol make you happy or sad?

Posted by cybercafe on May 19, 2005, at 19:56:48

Okay so if you give a bipolar cortisol, e.g. prednisone, they will go manic, be happy, etc.
So cortisol increases brain activity at the pleasure centers?

But at the same time... I remember reading that a lot of people who suffer from depression have high cortisol. Why is it that this high cortisol doesn't relieve their depression?
Or could it be that a lack of something else necessary for a good state is missing, so cortisol increases itself in an attempt to compensate?
