Saplosky on Depression

Here is Robert Sapolsky on depression.
And then look for topic.

Major depression (chronic & deep) affects 15% of world population. In depth presentation of symptoms, causes.

Interesting that Freud found that a powerful psychological causative factor is "inturned aggression" and he has predominant Retrograde Mars.

Freud was addicted to cocaine for much of his adult life. Cocaine imitates dopamine and replaces it. Dopamime deficiency is an important biological causative of depression. Was Freud depressive?

Rx Mars also goes far in explaining the prominence of sex in Freud's model of psychology.
