Research suggests that abnormalities in neurotransmitter activity can affect mood and behavior.

Low levels of serotonin and norepinephrine have not been proven to cause depression but it is widely believed that elevation of these chemicals is associated with improvement in mood in depressed people.

SSRIs are called selective because they seem to affect serotonin significantly more than other neurotransmitters.
