Previous research has shown that those reporting symptoms of depression and anxiety tend to exhibit greater relative right frontal electroencephalographic (EEG) activity. Thus, Davidson [Davidson, R.J., 1995. Cerebral asymmetry, emotion, and affective style. In: Davidson, R.J., Hugdahl, K. (Eds.), Brain Asymmetry. MIT, Cambridge, pp. 361-387] has suggested that greater relative right anterior activity may act as a vulnerability marker for the development of depression and anxiety disorders… CONTINUE READING
