18. Depressed People Look Happy
It’s no surprise that people who are depressed make bad decisions because quite often, they simply ‘cannot think straight’. Science has proven that people who suffer from depression have a different brain structure from those who are normal. In addition; the said structures, neural links, and brain circuits work in a different manner when a person is depressed.
Closer inspection of the brain scan of a person suffering from depression shows that there is a clear abnormality in the grey matter and in some cases the brain has visibly shrunk too. An enlarged amygdala can cause disturbances in the body’s natural sleep rhythm. An irregular amount of hormones may also be released into the blood causing more complications.
