Electroencephalographic (EEG) asymmetries found in nonseasonal depression were examined in seasonal affective disorder before and after bright-light exposure. Subjects with seasonal depression demonstrated the expected pattern of frontal asymmetry both when depressed and following light-induced remission. Right-hemisphere EEG coherence, by contrast, served as a state-dependent indicator of seasonal depression.
