    Interesting, but I think the thread title is misleading, @Indigophoton. As I read it, the EEG was not a treatment that helped the patients overcome depression, rather it provided a marker that helped predict which patients would improve.

    @Trish, the title refers to "EEG brain tests" rather than "EEG treatments", so I think it's accurate, and it's the title of the article, but you are welcome to change it if you would prefer something else, or think something else is more helpful.

    Ah, thanks, @Indigophoton, I confess I hadn't notice that it was the same as the article title, I was going on the content of the paper, not the article. In that case, by all means leave it. Sorry to cause confusion.
