What is the cause of manic-depressive illness?
Manic Depressive Illness or Bipolar Disorder is caused by disturbance in brain chemistry. Though not fully understood it is found that neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine in certain areas of the limbic system function poorly.
Medicines like mood stabilizers and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors correct neuronal transmission to produce near normal functionality.
