Chemical Causes of Depression Name Institutional Affiliated Date Introduction Depression is a mental disorder that involves a prolonged feeling of anger dejection sadness and lack of interest. This condition affects how a person feels how they think and behave. When a person is subject to depression they end up suffering from various emotional and physical problems. This is because many victims have trouble dealing with normal activities due to lack of concentration and a feeling of worthlessness. There are various symptoms of this disorder and they are as follows. The first symptom is a loss of interest in things and life lack of appetite or increased appetite lack of sleep or vice versa increased feeling of guilt and worthlessness suicidal thoughts and lack of concentration (James and Gregory 2017). The question that people might ask is what causes all these reactions so that they can be displayed as symptoms wrong to the point where symptoms clearly show that a person is a victim of depression. We have also noted how inhibitors react with the serotonin neurotransmitters leading to increased levels and eventually lead to cooling down and regulation of the severe depression state.
