According to a review of 61 studies of patients suffering from severely debilitating depression, a large majority of the patients reported that missing a night’s sleep immediately lifted their depression. Yet sleep-deprivation is not used to treat depression even though the conventional treatments, which use drugs and electric shocks, often have serious side effects.

Which of the following, if true, best explains the fact that sleep-deprivation is not used as a treatment of depression?
a. For a small percentage of depressed patients, missing a night’s sleep induces a temporary sense of euphoria
b. Keeping depressed patients awake is more difficult than keeping awake people who are not depressed
c. Prolonged loss of sleep can lead to temporary impairment of judgment comparable to that induced consuming several ounces of alcohol
d. The dramatic shifts in mood connected with sleep and wakefulness have not been traced to particular changes in brain chemistry
e. Depression returns in full force as soon as the patient sleeps for even a few minutes

Anyway, what is sleep-deprivation???? Please explain. Thanks

Picking E.
It validates the point that you cannot use sleep deprivation as a treatment 'coz the moment the patient sleeps for even a few minutes, depression returns again.

Will go with D.

Despite the fact that some patients have reported that sleep-deprivation (loss of sleep or less sleep) have helped them to tide over depression, yet doctors have not used it to treat depression.
This can be explained by the fact that, enough study or research has not gone into the effects of sleep deprivation to be used as a medical procedure.

Picked "C" earlier but I guess "E" is a much better answer.
