Low Mood | What's Happening in the Brain

The relationship between low mood and Alzheimer's disease is complex. Low mood reflects a low level of the brain chemical known as serotonin. This can decline on its own in depression . Low levels - and relatively low levels (relative to levels of other brain chemicals ) - are seen in people with mild Alzheimer's disease, and, in many people, at all stages of vascular dementia.
