In my opinion, the study you cited at the beginning of this thread is worthy of consideration. I think it was designed pretty well. I'll leave it to Larry to change my mind.

There are always going to SOME people who are uncomfortable with things that are new. The implications of this study are pretty heave-duty.

It is worth noting that there are studies that report a recovery of white matter tissue along with hippocampal tissue after a robust antidepressant response is maintained.
