Depression more than attack of blues By CHARLES FOLEY London Observer LOS ANGELES Some 10 to 15 million it is suffer from depres- sion not a passing attack of which we may all experience from time to time but a long-lasting mental characterized by physical feelings of loss of and similar symptoms. It isn't a but it isn't any fun and doctors find it is becoming almost as ubiquitous as the common cold. And quite as resistant to instant cure as scientists make use of new technology to unlock the secrets of the immense- ly complex human some tentative answers are emerging to the problem of what depression is all about. What causes What makes it so prevalent How do some peo- ple manage to cope with personal troubles and when others slide into depressions which may last for Much current research into these questions is concentrated in at centres like the University of California's Brain Research In- and Stanford University Medical where scientists like Dr. David Hamburg are investigating the tangle of physiological and psychological factors involved in our depressions and agressive drives Dr. a professor of admits ruefully only beginning to un- derstand the links between these What does emerge from the mass of new ex- perimental evidence is that along with other more traumatic mental disorders such as appears to be more close- ly linked than had hitherto been realized to the actions of certain chemicals in the brain. All our emotions and behaviour are be- ing shown to have highly complex biochemical roots in the brain. Traditional psychiatry has long looked for the causes of mental disturbance in such things as a broken a threatening a grim social environment. These may be only a part and a lesser part of the story. Has many forms Doctors used to think of depression as having only one as Dr. H. Keith Brodie of Stanford University deeper research the more forms we depression comes in two one in which periods of apathy and gloom alternate with spells of almost excessive euphoria a kind of emotional and one which causes an individual to suffer only a series of extended Depression is not it afflicts people of the and of the most com- intelligence. One example is the novelist Virginia who all her life suffered from fits of crushing despair about her her her ability to yet she produced a dozen books of dazzling wit and and to most of her friends appeared as a woman of great vivacity and charm. She belong- ed in the psychiatrists' first the so- called Nor is depression always triggered by some painful such as the loss of a much-beloved person. Many women depression is twice as common among suffer attacks after the birth of a although the previous nine months have been filled with happy anticipation. Virginia Woolf's dark spells often came on with the completion of another book. A major hospital study found that 40 per cent of a group of patients treated for depression had not experienced any recent stress or personal while another 35 per cent had gone through some kind of personal trouble yet long before the depression struck. Of the remaining 25 per cent in this a bereavement or similar event had taken place within six months of the attack. these people had all faced tragedy earlier in their lives without grave depression. Perhaps these new troubles were simply the straws that broke the camels' Or was some undetected physical change in brain and body chemistry making them more California researchers are becoming more and more convinced that the answer may lie with the a class of chemical com- pounds found inside the brain which are involved in the transmission of nerve and linked to our emotional states. Recent experiments suggest that depression is related to low levels of these amines norepmephrine and to name two in the brain. What causes this amine shortage is it may be inherited weakness in'the system which regulates our amine level. In time of such as the loss of a near the system is asked by the brain to increase the level of amines to cope with the but if stress says Dr. Jack a Stanford brain the inherited weakness makes it difficult for your brain to produce large quan- tities of amines. so you may be vulnerable to In contrast to this increasingly popular theory is the orthodox Freudian view of depression as a species of protective a covering up of some childhood or the result of guilty feelings over one's inability to love someone as much as society dictates one should. In when you can't love but you must you hating leads to and guilt to self- hatred. one of the major differences between a normal grief and depression lies in the sorrowing person's view of himself. The depressed person feels he is to blame for and his self-esteem plunges down. Despite all the depression remains largely a medical mystery.
