Clinical depression is one of the disorders that the notion of kindling has been applied. For as Kendler et al (2005) have shown, that while a first episode may be caused by severe adversity, the experience of one episode makes a second more likely, the second makes a third more likely and so on, sometimes in the absence of stressors.
Monroe and Harkness (2005) suggested a number of mechanism that might underly this observation.
