Yes, I have read this before. Statins can increase neurogenesis through some mechanism.

Metformin may improve mood via insulin sensitization in the brain. Insulin resistance in the brain is linked to poor brain function and metformin may help to reverse this. Also it interacts with OCT (organic cation transporter) receptors which may have some influence on neurotransmitter levels.
