Abstract

A neurobiological basis for at least some depressive disorders is suggested both by clinical features, including diurnal variation, delusions of guilt or illness, psychomotor change, and early morning awakening, as well as by the periodicity in the natural history and evidence for a genetic etiological component. Freud also held this view as indicated in his classic essay entitled “Mourning and Melancholia” where he commented: “Melancholia, whose definition fluctuates even in descriptive psychiatry, takes on various clinical forms, the grouping together of which into a single unity does not seem established with certainty; and some of these forms suggest somatic rather than psychogenic affectations” (Vol. XIV, p. 243). “What is probably a somatic factor, and one which cannot be explained psychogenically, makes itself visible in the regular amelioration in the condition that takes place towards evening …These considerations bring up the question …wether an impoverishment of ego-libido directly due to Toxins may not be able to produce certain forms of the disease.” (Vol. XIV, p. 253).
