Text Completion- Treating Depression

    In measuring electrical activity in different parts of the brain, researchers found that people who describe themselves as generally happy have more activity in the left prefrontal lobe of their brains than do other people. Therefore, a medication for ____________ the left prefrontal lobe of the brain would be an ____________ treatment for clinical depression.

    1. suppressing, ineffective
    2. stimulating, effective
    3. improving, impressive
    4. challenging, practical


  • Correct Answer
    Choice (B)

Detailed Solution

Blank (1): If people are happy when there is more activity in a lobe, why should we suppress that lobe? ‘Improving’ doesn’t make much sense here either. A medication to stimulate that lobe makes sense, not ‘challenge’ the lobe.

Blank (2): We are discussing some new insight; the discussion is towards finding something that will work. So the correct word here is effective.

Correct Answer: B. stimulating, effective

Correct Answer: B
