Human depression: a new approach in quantitative psychiatry

Ann Gen Psychiatry. 2010 Jun 3;9:25. doi: 10.1186/1744-859X-9-25.

Abstract

The biomolecular approach to major depression disorder is explained by the different steps that involve cell membrane viscosity, Gsalpha protein and tubulin. For the first time it is hypothesised that a biomolecular pathway exists, moving from cell membrane viscosity through Gsalpha protein and Tubulin, which can condition the conscious state and is measurable by electroencephalogram study of the brain's gamma wave synchrony.
