Sorry of course I meant "hippocampus". In "Against Depression" Peter Kramer devotes a large part of his writing to describing the physical changes in depression eg hippocampal shrinkage and decrease in glia cells in the pre-frontal cortex. Perhaps if a Dr can appreciate the physical harm correlated with depression, s/he might be more impressed than by the usual depressed persons' complaining and see opiates as a viable alternative. I'm not clear if the physical effects cause the depression, are caused by it, or are merely associated or if they have a functional relationship (a two-way effect) Fred
