Placebo effect

Fascinating article on the placebo effect has just been published at the Wired web site. Well worth a read. Make me think about my depression med's. I would be more skeptical as I was already very aware of the placebo effect and the issues with antidepressants being as good as placebo. Yet I have noticed a big difference in mood.

If you don't have time to read the article, skip to the last page and read the illustration that discusses pill colors and other such important things for placebo effect.
