This is true. Some studies show that there are structural improvements (i.e. hippocampal volume) with traditional antidepressants, over time. They can also be neuroprotective. I don't know if the same can be said for stimulants.

Ketamine seems to have a mixture of neurotrophic effects and immediate activation of reward systems. Who knows the relative contribution of these two. However, I would say that (on average) a single dose of ketamine would last longer than a single dose of a stimulant or opioid (for most depressed patients). So, there is something more going on here than simply activating your reward system.
