Morocco has an area of approximately 446,550 sq km (172,413 sq mi) located in the northwestern corner of the African continent. Forming its western perimeter is the Atlantic Ocean. Bounded by the Mediterranean Sea from the north. To the east and southeast lies the Algerian border and extending from the far south is the Moroccan Sahara.
Morocco has four distinct geographic regions:
In the north is the Rif mountains rising as high as 2,440m(8,000ft), in line with Mediterranean coast.
Extending across the country is the the Atlas mountains from southwest to northeast between the Atlantic Ocean and the Rif.
Wide coastal plains forming an arc extending along the country's western seaboard and bounded Rif and Atlas mountains. This where most Moroccan lives.
South of the Atlas merging with Sahara along the southeastern borders are the lowlands.
In 1967, a Hungarian psychiatrist Ervin Varga observed that racemic deprenyl given in large doses has an antidepressant action.
