Is there much research going on into more sensory-based treatments for depression?  The smell of the air before a thunderstorm is known to have mood-enhancing effects, ditto the smell of fresh sea air.  Colours and sounds can have similar mood-enhancing effects.  Is it possible that combinations of various sounds, colours, etc. might be used to treat depression?  If so then the whys and wherefores of such an treatment could possibly point to the targeted stimulation of certain underused neural pathways in the brain as an effective treatment for depression.
