Study Reverses Thinking on Genetic Links to Stress, Depression

Study Reverses Thinking on Genetic Links to Stress, Depression

Studies and Research are going on all the time and often they clash over the outcome.  I do believe that stress can lead to depression and if there is a genetic link, this may exacerbate the condition.


Newswise — New research findings often garner great attention. But when other scientists follow up and fail to replicate the findings? Not so much.

In fact, a recent study published in PLOS One indicates that only about half of scientific discoveries will be replicated and stand the test of time. So perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that new research led by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis shows that an influential 2003 study about the interaction of genes, environment and depression may have missed the mark.
