When dealing with undue anxiety for taking the ACT, what is one of the best ways to reduce this anxiety and be more confident in yourself taking the exam?

What is the Neuroplastic Theory of Affective Disorders?
A theory that suggests depression results from a reduction in the synthesis of neurotophins in cortical areas, along with a decrease in adult neurogenesis within the hippocampus. Antidepressant drugs, injections of ketamine, and electrical and/or magnetic stimulation promote neuroplastic mechanisms, which support this theory.
