New Research Shows Depression Treatment Improves Your Brain’s Connections
A life spent with treatment-resistant depression can train you to believe that some things just don’t change, especially big things. Your brain is certainly a big thing. Its dynamic structures transmit your thoughts and hold your essence.
Today, we want to share recent news that your brain can change. Specifically, new research shows that treating depression increases the brain’s connections.
When the subject is the brain, improved connectivity is a positive development.
What Are the Key Details Here?
Last October, a group of German scientists announced their important findings at a conference in Vienna, and we invite you to read about it. Notably:
- Most scientists previously thought the brain’s structure was too rigid to change rapidly.
- The study featured 109 participants with serious depression compared to 55 control participants.
- After treatment for depression, MRI results showed an increase in brain connections.
- Participants who responded better to treatment gained the most connections.
Hope is sometimes a stranger when you face treatment-resistant depression. Those new details reveal hope could be a friend again.
