  1. sounds too good to be true

  2. Of course they didn’t check every single human, that would be impossible. I’ll find the name of the epidemiology study in a bit.

  3. What i asked is the kind of sources for those data? wherer did they get that 7 percent and 2.6 percent values. They did not check every single human, so just a reduced group were checked, in some specific way(s).

  4. Well from “Essentials of Abnormal Psychology” by Durand and Barlow, the lifetime prevalence of major depressive disorder in men is 2.6% whereas with women it’s 7%. It does mention that men tend to be more self-destructive as Uni.Ex.Nihilo mentioned but since this is occurring more so in women, it makes sense that they would focus on women here.

  5. such kind of notion (generalisation) is always the conclusion of something. So what does the textbook concludes on? Psychology works with controll systems; note there are other controll systems..

  6. Very interesting…Will try to read the analysis and follow-up papers of such studies. However the brain is not only the principium of all effects, its state and functioning can be also caused by other agents like organ health ( tyroid…) and hormone levels. So a brain scan can appear as a global picture, but sometimes is only the visible part of an hidden process.. In that case i just wonder what can be the results of such monitored training…

  7. Where did you get the info that males are much more susceptible to get depression? Most basic textbook stats I’ve seen regarding the topic tends to says women are more susceptible. Just curious.

  8. yeah, but read this medscape.com/viewarticle/471577 . so basically the suicide – depression link does not maintain between genders.

  9. If you think i’m wrong then explain why.
    Just telling my i’m wrong is not constructive.

    I asked you where you read it because i’m actually interested in reading it

    “since it’s not important”
    Sounds like your are asserting assumptions, delusions and preconceptions as fact.

    The source of info is important.
    Reading it a male hating woman magazine for example is not credible and plain stupid to believe in the first place based on the source and it’s preconceptions, etc..

  10. The pharmaceutical industries won’t like this…

  11. @StanfordUniversity i want to hear more about the prevention techniques and the result of this research.

  12. “Males have a much larger susceptibility to depression”
    Where did you read this ?

    “and are 10 times more likely to commit suicide than females.”
    Boys go straight to the point, suicide. Girls commonly damage themselves in some form rather than suicide for example cutting, drugs, bad behavior, etc..

  13. Of what i have read, girls are more prone to stress and depression. Commonly due to media, social pressure, peer pressure, etc…

    So testing girls will give higher probability of finding and testing these techniques.

  14. They still have no results, and what relation would this have to neurolinguistics? The suppression of emotions are not linked to language usage and I can’t see how this research can in any way be used in research on language.

  15. I find these kind of behaviorist attempts at “curing” certain types of internal states to be quite problematic. Soldiers in war do these kind of “tricks” in order to be able to kill other human beings without feeling distress, but this can have repercussions later in life. Same approach was tested in curing Obsessive Compulsion Disorder by getting patients to rub dirt in their faces and suppress their compulsions in order to deal with it.

  16. 10 times more likely is an exaggeration. it’s more like 4.

  17. Oh Stanford

  18. We live in depressing times, eat depressing foods, live depressing lives and not to even mention that were constantly at war with ourselves and everyone around us… Wow, I guess depression is a real no brainer huh?

  19. they are trying to reduce varying results..

  20. i agree, this is amazing stuff that deserves more media attention and funding.

  21. This is good one step closer to becoming Vulcan.

  22. this research simply confirms that Neuro linguistic programming works

  23. This is fantastic! It desperately needs media attention
