From How Emotions Are Made
Jump to: navigation, search

Chapter 10 endnote 29, from How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context is:

Twenty-seven million Americans take daily antidepressants, yet more than 70 percent continue to experience symptoms anyway, and psychotherapy is not effective for everyone either.

There are a number of informative books on depression and treatment, but unfortunately, the books often disagree with one another. To learn more about treatment efficacy, it might be more helpful to go back to some original scientific papers. Here are a few to begin with.[1][2][3][4][5]
