Nature recently published two papers on dopamine and depression in the same issue, both of them using optogenetics to look at the role of the dopamine system in depression, and both of them found...very different things. I like them both (and Ed covered them both really well), and I'll be covering them both over the next two days. The first is already up at the Scicurious Brain, and the other will be up tomorrow, then we may be playing compare and contrast. Head over and check it out!
