Title / Titel Study of brain electric function in never depressed and formerly depressed subjects: LORETA and microstate-analysis
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung EEG (Electroencephalogram) will be recorded from healthy subjects that either never had depressions and from subjects that suffered at least once in their past from depressions. Psychopathology will be explored in a clinical interview and with 2 questionnaires. This study will analyze the difference between psychopathology (never depressed compared to formerly depressed), emotionality (reaction to emotional stimuli and momentary emotional state) and electrophysiology (mode and dimension of changes in spontaneous EEG and evoked potentials). The EEG data will be analyzed with LORETA (low resolution brain electromagnetic tomography) and with brain field microstate analysis (duration, repertoire and configuration of microstates).
