Stress has long been implicated as a major cause of depression in humans and more recently has been suggested to decrease neurogenesis, which may be a contributing factor to depression development. Animal models of stress may be a relevant tool for investigating links between neurogenesis and depression. This has largely been investigated using chronic stress models in rodents. However, stress may be chronic or experienced in discrete episodes. Acute stress may be particularly relevant to… CONTINUE READING
