Depression Is Linked to Hyperconnectivity of Brain Regions, a New Study Shows
Posted February 25, 2012on:
A study published today provides surprising new insight into what happens in depressed brains.
In people with depression, brain regions appear to be overly connected to one another, says the study, which is being published by UCLA’s Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. In turn, this excessive connectivity reduces the flexibility the brain needs to function properly.
