Patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) and enrolled in an open-label safety surveillance study of a sustained release formulation of bupropion hydrochloride (100 to 300 mg/day) were evaluated with the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) immediately before and 6 to 12 weeks after the initiation of drug treatment. Auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) recorded under a stimulus intensity modulation paradigm were also obtained at these times. Patients were classified as… 
The loudness dependency of the auditory evoked N1/P2-component as a predictor of the acute SSRI response in depression
The finding confirms the hypothesis that a strong LDAEP, indicating a low serotonergic activity, is related to a favorable response to acute SSRI treatment in depression.
Loudness dependence of the auditory evoked potential and response to antidepressants in Chinese patients with major depression.
Strong pretreatment LDAEP predicted a favourable response to treatment with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor in patients with major depression.
Prediction of Long-Term Treatment Response to Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) Using Scalp and Source Loudness Dependence of Auditory Evoked Potentials (LDAEP) Analysis in Patients with Major Depressive Disorder
The findings of this study reveal that a high baseline LDAEP is associated with a clinical response to long-term antidepressant treatment.
The loudness dependence of the auditory evoked potential (LDAEP) as a predictor of the response to escitalopram in patients with generalized anxiety disorder
GAD patients with a favorable response to escitalopram treatment are characterized by a stronger pretreatment LDAEP, which appears to provide useful clinical information for predicting treatment responses in patients with GAD.

This review aims to highlight the most consistently noted EEG and ERP features in MDD, which may one day assist with diagnostic confirmation, as well as the potential clinical utility of specific electrocortical measures in aiding with response prediction.
Response prediction to antidepressants using scalp and source-localized loudness dependence of auditory evoked potential (LDAEP) slopes
Event-Related Brain Potentials in Depression : Clinical , Cognitive and Neurophysiologic Implications
The findings of studies measuring ERPs in depressed patients during a variety of sensory, cognitive and emotional tasks are brought together to contribute toward a better understanding of the specific processes and neurophysiologic mechanisms that are dysfunctional in depressive disorders.
Event-related potentials to auditory stimuli in female Vietnam nurse veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder.
Findings suggest that target P3b amplitude and P2 amplitude/intensity slope abnormalities reflect different pathophysiological processes.
