People With Recurrent Depression Have Smaller Hippocampus

 

A new study by the University of Sydney found that people suffering from major depressive disorder have a significantly smaller hippocampus than healthy individuals.

It is unclear if the reduction in hippocampus size was caused by chronic stress because of depression or a risk factor for depression.

"This new finding of smaller hippocampal volume in people with major depression may offer some support to the neurotrophic hypothesis of depression," the researchers say. The hippocampus is an area of the brain responsible for memory and emotion.
