On Current Research in Affective Disorders

Conference paper
Part of the Psychopharmacology Series book series (PSYCHOPHARM, volume 5)


To give a short review of all the excellent papers of the current research in affective disorders in this volume is not an easy task. A lot of new data have emerged since I gave a similar review 3 years ago (Fog 1985).
