Genes and depression

Everybody hurts sometimes, everybody cries, but not everybody becomes depressed. New findings suggest that the path to depression depends, in part, on a gene that determines how you react to the stresses of life – the stress of losing a job, a partner, a house, or some combination of these and other possibilities. A team of psychologists and geneticists describe these findings in the 18 July issue of the journal Science published by AAAS, the science society.
