Fact of the day : Reduced white matter due to depression

Hey Awesomites

People ( or patients ) suffering from depression have reduced integrity of white matter substance. This means the neuronal circuit loses its connections with other parts of brain due to miscommunication between the brain cells.

A recent study mapped the internal structures of brain using diffusion tensor imaging ( DTI ) technology, that is a specialised MRI scan that creates a 3D map as it follows the diffusion of water in brain tissue.
