This can be solved via POE since all the other choices except A fall out.

(A) cause clinical depression, but they have not established what these abnormalities are or -- CORRECT

We can eliminate B,C,D,E checking for idioms alone. CORRECT IDIOMS: Neither X nor Y & Not X but Y
There are other errors also though. But idioms are spotted easily.

(B) cause clinical depression, but they have not established either what these abnormalities are nor
(C) are the cause of clinical depression, but they have neither not established what these abnormalities are or
(D) are the cause of clinical depression, but they have not established either what these abnormalities are nor
(E) causes clinical depression, but they have not established what these abnormalities are nor

Based on two structures "neither ... nor" and "either ... or", we can eliminate B,C and D
E is wrong as the "abnormalities" requires the plural verb "cause"
Hence choose A
