Bipolar depression and sadness: What is the difference ;?

Researchers have long struggled to differentiate depression associated with bipolar disorder depression that comes with major depression. A new study suggests that sadness and depression associated with bipolar disorder is different, however.

Brain scans show that the emotions associated with major depression and bipolar disorder are different and therefore different treatment. bipolar participants who were not depressed had more brain activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, while bipolar participants who were depressed had lower activity in this region. This finding suggests that people with bipolar disorder have to work harder to manage and regulate emotions. Not all depression is the same, and should be treated accordingly.
