I know that depression can impact the functionality of the hippocampus. I don't know if the statment could be extended to say that depressed individuals suffer from a lowering of IQ, IQ is not thought to reside in the hippocampus. Do you have any references for that conclusion ?

There has also been debate as to the validity of the assertion that antidepressants can prevent or repair this damamge. Some studies show that antidepressants reduce depression induced hippocampal loss and atropy while other studies suggest that no such conclusion can be made.

It is a similar arugment with schizophrenia. Although the antipsychotics can help symptoms of schizophrenia, they do not really correct or halt the underlying progression of the illness, sometimes they acutally make it worse.
