\ue000The affective disorders are so called because one
of their main features is abnormality of mood
\ue000Nowadays the term is usually restricted to disorder

in which this mood is depression elation, but in the past some authors have included states of anxiety as well

\ue000The symptom of depression is a component of
many psychiatric symptoms and is also found
commonly in certain physical diseases
\ue000The central features of these syndromes are known

as mood, pessimistic thinking, lack of enjoyment,
reduced energy, and slowness. Of these,
depressive mood is usually, but not invariably, the

most prominent symptom

Elation can also occur as a symptom in several
psychiatric syndromes, though it is less widely
encountered than depression
