Neurochemical studies demonstrate altered numbers of monoaminergic receptors in the prefrontal cortex in suicide and depression victims, implicating dysfunction of the prefrontal cortex in the neuropathology of suicide and psychiatric disorders. Neuroimaging studies in vivo have revealed an altered pattern of cortical metabolism and reductions in frontal… CONTINUE READING
