Description
"PATTERNS of electrical brain activity have been used to tell when people are sad, happy or depressed. The advance could lead to new ways of treating those with depression or anxiety using devices that constantly monitor their mood via brain signals.
Ultimately, the aim is to program the devices so they activate mood-uplifting brain networks when they detect potentially dangerous negative emotions.
By activating electrodes implanted in specific regions of people’s brains – a process called deep brain stimulation."
