There’s nothing wrong with your brain, just like there’s nothing wrong with the air in Oklahoma — despite the devastating tornadoes. The depressed person has not damaged goods but the brain is wired differently. It is a result of poor communication between two systems in the brain. A downward spiral is caused by anxiety, worry, bad habits, and negative thoughts. To get out of the downward spiral, small steps can be initiated by setting goals and making small decisions. An accessible account of how the brain malfunctions and how these cause depression, this book also provides instructions on how to follow an “upward spiral” and get out of the debilitating condition.
The Upward Spiral is written by Alex Korb who is currently doing postdoctoral neuroscience research at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is a blogger for Psychology Today.
