I found an interesting article on a new preliminary study on neuron density and suicide. A small study group of people with bi-polar disorder or schizophrenia  who died of suicide brains’ were compared with a group of people with that disease who died of natural non-suicide causes and they found those who committed suicide had a higher density of economo neurons. These neurons are associated with emotional pain and empathy. Read the paper here! http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0020936
