A recent study by the University of Cambridge has found depression affects the brains of males and females differently, which could lead to targeted treatments. Researchers exposed adolescents with depression to happy or sad words and then imaged their brains and found that different regions of the brain were affected in males and females. Studies have found that by age 15, girls are twice as likely to experience depression compared to boys of the same age. Body image issues, hormonal fluctuations and genetic factors are all thought to influence depression in girls and make them more susceptible to the mental disorder.
