Researchers at France’s University of Bordeaux have discovered a link between post-stroke depression and an area of the brain responsible for handling idle thought patterns.
Their findings, published online in the journal Radiology, show a relationship between a group of brain structures called the default-mode network (DMN) and post-stroke depression in women. The DMN is responsible for helping a person engage in internal thoughts and is activated when they are not focusing on a specific task.
In people who have suffered strokes and later became depressed, this area’s connections were modified.
