Research offers insight into exactly how stress has an effect on the brain and could help to explain why certain people are susceptible to depression whenever they encounter chronic stress. The study unveils complex molecular mechanisms related to chronic stress and could help with new depression treatment strategies.
According to the researchers, many people subjected to stressful events don’t show depression symptoms, but some people subjected to psychological stress are susceptible to major depression. So far, the molecular mechanisms underlying the susceptibility to chronic stress inside the brain are inadequately understood.
