Psychiatric Diseases and Depression
Changes in appetite and weight loss are commonly occurring symptoms in various psychiatric diseases; however, it is clear that a disturbance of appetite is a cardinal feature of depressive disorders. There is a large amount of data available about the epidemiology, phenomenology, associated neurobiological findings, and pharmacological interventions that bear on the links between mood disorders and appetite. The findings may ultimately contribute to our understanding of appetite regulation per se.
