Gray Matter

Occasionally I’ll visit medical websites and read up on new studies and advances in the area of mental health. 

I’m so happy with the many studies being done with a serious approach to depression, anxiety and other illnesses. 

One in particular I read just this morning involves developing new techniques for studying changes in the brain of patients with mood disorders.

 Researchers believe that depression and anxiety disorders may cause structural and functional changes in the brain

To me this is such good news. 

If we can better understand how mood disorders work, we can better treat these patients. 

Yay for science 🙂
