Low serotonin levels in the brain are frequently held responsible for depression. Although alternatives are emerging and altering our understanding of the disease, that response is insufficient. 

According to surveys, more than 80% of the populace attributes the problem to a “chemical imbalance” in the brain. However, serotonin depletion is only one factor contributing to depression.A 361 publications from six scientific areas were assessed by an international team of scientists under the direction of Joanna Moncrieff of University College London, and 17 of them were carefully evaluated.

The serotonin activity of those with depression did not consistently appear to be lower than that of those without the condition.
