Anhedonia

A key symptom of depression is anhedonia, typically defined as the loss of ability to experience a pleasure. It is a core feature of depression, but it is also one of the most treatment-resistant symptoms. Researchers have found that experimental antidepressant ketamine acts on this region, helping explain why this drug may prove effective at treating anhedonia.
