Description

This paper explores the interplay between psychology and neurobiology. Does human depression relate to the concept of Learned Helplessness - first observed in animal research? If so, what can we learn that might help impact the future of mental health treatment? Is there a biological basis for helplessness and is it quantifiable? Is there a “hope” section of the brain?
