I thought this was an interesting article, especially considering I'm slowly recovering from severe anhedonia. I would love to never have to go through it again and wouldn't wish it on anyone. I found this by googling anhedonia and hormones. Hopefully it hasn't already been posted. The article discusses the role of melanocortin and the brain's reward system. It also talks about how some methods of research (mainly the forced swim tests for lab rats) may be causing scientists to overlook information that could lead to better treatments. Besides mental illness, it also has the potential for weight loss applications.
