Abstract:Resting eyes-closed regional EEG alpha was collected from four gender-balanced groups: depressed, anxious, comorbid (depressed and anxious), and control college students. More brain activity was observed over the left hemisphere. This asymmetry increased with anxiety. Low-depression/high-anxiety women showed greater left hemisphere activity. Gender was also involved in other significant interactions. Results indicate that regional brain activity in depression and anxiety differs for men and women, suggesting that gender distributions and degree of comorbidity can affect the outcome of a study. Current theorizing on the implications of distinct patterns of brain activity in depression and anxiety should take gender into consideration.
