Dr. Mayberg explains if depression is diagnosed using a test.
Well, actually there is no lab test. This is this constellation of symptoms that need to be differentiated from having a bad day, having a bad week. These are signs and symptoms that occur together in these clusters, and that it’s the fact that it’s a pervasive attitude, pervasive and continuous feeling of having these various symptoms that makes the diagnosis of a major depression.
