Storyboard Text

  • What is depression?
  • Depression is a brain disorder that can lead to much emotional anguish. Changes in how your brain functions also can have a big effect on your body.
  • It lingers around 2 consecutive weeks, and interferes with ones ability to work.
  • Oh ! What are they?
  • There are two evolutionary theories of depression..
  • There's the Social Rumination Function and Social motivation function
  • Could you please explain a bit more about the difference of those two?
  • It is said that non-depressed people tend to show 'self serving bias'. However, the depressives use the depressive attributional style, attributing success to chance or environmental circumstances and failure to personal factors.
  • Social rumination theory has the ability to explain key clinical characteristics and research findings.
  • Depression threatens natural and sexual selection and therefore showing depressed behavior should evoke help from others in order that the whole social group will not be affected.
  • It suggests that depressive behaviours are adaptive because they show 'signal of need' to others that are willing and able to give help.
  • There's also the 'social motivation' function
