I saw this video on Youtube of Professor Robert Sapolsky from Stanford about the nature of depression. He has hit the nail on the nail on the head, in my opinion. I can only hope that those people who work in the varying fields of treatment for patients suffering from this illness take the time to watch this video and learn. If you or anyone you know suffers from a form of depression, than you may want to take the time to watch this to gain a better understanding of what is going on with this illness.
The lecture is great, but the video work is not the best, as when the professor begins to talk about his second half of the lecture, the videographer does not show the white board with the notes on it, as I would have liked. But, it is definitely worth watching despite this little annoyance.
