Reportedly, scientists have for some time watched the 120 volunteers at the beginning of the study suffered from severe depression and trying to get rid of it through hard work. Experts say that most of the study participants were indeed able to overcome a mental disorder. Scientists believe that the “healing” effect on volunteers had the passion for the work, which allowed little time to think about the adverse circumstances that served as the cause of depression.

However, another group of researchers representing the University of Texas, recently received new evidence that depression does not help a person to focus on work and significantly reduces its productivity. However, experts suggest that this dependence can be used for good — how quickly restored the productivity of the employee and in no small degree to judge how successfully bounces his emotional state. This, according to the researchers show the results of a study involving 331 volunteers, conducted over seven months and published in the scientific journal American Journal of Psychiatry.

It should be noted that neither of these two studies can not be called large, as several hundred people, according to most experts can not give full and objective idea about a particular issue.
