Psychotherapy might affect it. But you can't do that experiment -- there is no way to detect it non-invasively in the human brain and you can't do psychotherapy on a rat. But people have scanned the brains of patients that have taken anti-depressants and compared them to those receiving psychotherapy (CBT, I think). Both groups had similar changes in their brains, and both groups recovered from depression.
