Hello everybody

I am currently working on interaction between nucleic acids and lithium. Could
someone explain how the Lithium is said to fight against manic depression? I
know of one hypothesis stating that it stabilizes phospholipids present in
neuron membranes. Also, it is known that it increases the quantity of
inositol-phosphate (inhibition of inositol phosphatase???). How is this
achieved? I'd enjoy to know more about concurrent hypothesis. Thank you very
much and have a nice day!     8^)
