Indeed. If our thoughts are caused by chemical and electrical activity in the brain, and a placebo helps a person suffering from depression feel better, did the brain "fix" itself by altering these activities? Or perhaps other chemical/electrical activities has made the depression not as important? I really don't know, but it is amazing.

It's quite a long article, but I think it makes some good points
