This suggests, that lithium has a different effect than synthetic psychotropic drugs. The tissue was examined at the neutron source FRM II using a specially developed detector. The aim of the doctoral thesis is to map the distribution of lithium in the human brain, as well as in healthy and depressive patients, to lead to a better understanding of the effect of lithium on the human mind.
