Only a decade ago, most neuroscientists thought that neurogenesis (the production of new nerve cells) in human beings ended with adulthood. Now, however, it is clear that neurogenesis continues throughout life and may play an important role in adult brain function--including, as the authors propose, in the etiology of depression. Citing evidence that stress reduces neurogenesis and that the most effective antidepressive medications increase it, the authors suggest that the waning and waxing of neurogenesis in the hippocampus might trigger the precipitation of and recovery from episodes of clinical depression.
It has long been understood that suggestion can be very powerful in both curing and causing illness, but historically the emphasis has been on the positive side. The negative side is called a nocebo. It shows up regularly in tests in which one group is given a real drug and another a fake drug as a control. For example, in one study of the antidepressant Prozac, 15 percent of the subjects claimed to have gotten headaches even though it turned out they were receiving a placebo.
