  1. In the same cohort of females, serum AEA is significantly increased in minor depression, whereas 2-AG is decreased in major depression 11. * correlation coefficient as determined by Pearson correlation tests; † probability value; ‡ statistical significance; MAP, mean arterial blood pressure; SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; HR: heart rate
