Scientists discover the molecule responsible for causing feelings of depression

Recommended Posts

Not trying to be a hater.. But this is just another re-invention of the wheel, so common in pop-science.
Endocrinology has been around for a long time, and there's a plethora of papers discussing hormonal involvement in depression.
The title is just so misleading: "Scientists discover the molecule responsible for depression". No, no, no! This is a fallacy!
It should be more like: "Scientists take another look at the molecule involved in depression".
Moreover, this has been known, hypothesized and discussed for years! Have a Google on "Antalarmin".

No offense to you goldenboy, I just get pissed off about this so-called "scientific news".
