What is major depression?

Andrew Huberman AI:

Major depression is a serious condition characterized by a significant depression of the nervous system, mood, and affect, or outlook on life. One of the key distinguishing features is that people's outlook on life becomes very diminished. They don't see a future and when asked about aspects of their life like work or relationships, it's not just that they feel these areas are going poorly, but they truly believe there's no opportunity for improvement. It's a state of mind that goes beyond just feeling a little low, it's a profound sense of despair and hopelessness.
