Fun Psych Fact of the Day

Posted November 21st, 2013 at 03:00 AM by TheMightyBruce

Major Depressive Disorder occurs twice as often in females than males. The average age of onset is somewhere between mid and late 20's. However, this age of onset is slowly becoming lower and lower. After one major depressive episode, it is likely that more will occur.

Keep in mind that just because signs of depression are present, you may NOT have Major Depression. There are a variety of disorders that involve depression symptoms.

Fun Psych Fact of the Day

GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter of the nervous system.

Too much can prevent neurons from carrying out messages properly or fully.

At the same time, too little of this neurotransmitter can cause neurons to fire too quickly or too easily when coming in contact with stimuli. This leads to symptoms associated with irritability, anxiety/panic attacks, and insomnia.
