This theory postulates that prior stressors and depressive episodes cause neurobiological alteration, thus affecting the threshold at which stress is required to precipitate subsequent depression. The repeated stressors or depressive episodes then contribute to progressive changes in information processing, thus resulting in reduction of the threshold for triggering recurrences.
