2.7. Depression is not a chemical imbalance illness (x5 presentations, 1 hr 42 min 40)

This module updated and expanded as of May 2020.

The assertion that depression is a chemical imbalance illness is one of the most widely accepted 'facts' about depression.

In this module, we examine the veracity of such claims in some detail.

This module consists of:

1. Audio-visual presentation 'Brain chemical imbalances critique'. This is a detailed presentation - 1 hour, 32 min, 4 sec long.

2. A pdf document of the slides used in presentation no. 1 above, pdf entitled '2.7. Depression, not a brain chemical imbalance'. The '2.7' in this title arises from the fact that in the full 'Depression: Its True Nature' course, this module is module no. 2.7.

3. A second audio-visual presentation entitled 'No chemical imbalances, update'. This video lasts 12 minutes 33 seconds. I added this video in late August 2018 to include relevant material that arose since I created the original video in 2016.

4. A second pdf document containing the slides used in the production of the second video in this module.
