I would posit that the Limbic Hypothalamic-Pituatry-Adrenal (LHPA) [Axis]) area of research is the one most likely to bear fruit in the study of depression.
The HPA axis is intimately intertwined with the endocrine/immune system.
And the influence of cytokines (which typically mediate fevers) on the HPA axis is particularly intriguing.
