Re: Antipsychotics and brain volume

Hi, NKP.

How do interpret the results of this study as it relates to brain volume?

Isn't brain inflammation common in depression? I never looked into the effects of antidepressants on brain inflammation. It may be that the association of depression and inflammation is not so easily explained. Which came first, the inflammation or the depressive state? After the induction of a mood illness, does a primary disease pathology and a pro-inflammatory reaction to it become self-reinforcing? Perhaps a positive-feedback loop accelerates the development of symptoms or makes the depression more robust and less likely to remit spontaneously.
