Detecting Depression: A 1-Minute EEG Test Reveals Mood Shifts

Posted by in categories: futurism, neuroscience

Summary: Depression, a challenging condition to diagnose early, may now be detected more promptly using a simple 1-minute Electroencephalogram (EEG) test at home.

This study revealed a relationship between EEG results and the severity of participants’ depressive moods over several weeks. Phase resetting, where brain waves from different regions synchronize, correlated with mood intensity.

The discovery could revolutionize early depression detection and future treatments.
