Depression and the Brain

Show Summary Details

Preview

Chapter 10 is about depression, where the aforementioned psychodynamic key features of internalization and introjection resurface in a distorted gestalt. Rather than focusing on abnormalities in specific brain regions, I here highlight the abnormal redirection of otherwise normally functioning neuronal mechanisms and their consecutive induction of the symptoms and psychodynamic key features that characterize depression.
