Cordance during Sleep indicates if you need to switch Antidepressants

Dr Mikoteit, Dr Zeising et al. have discovered that measuring brainwaves produced during REM sleep can predict whether a patient will respond to treatment from depression. Precisely prefrontal theta cordance has been calculated during REM sleep.

Those patients who were unlikely to have successful treatment – based on the prefrontal theta cordance value – were immediately switched to a different treatment. After 5 weeks it was found that 87.5% of these patients had an improved response, as opposed to just 20% in the control group.

Very important contribution to the field of EEG based predictors for treatment outcome in depression.
