The effects of cerebral electric therapy (electrosleep) on anxiety, depression, and hostility in psychiatric patients.


The effects of cerebral electric therapy (electrosleep) and placebo on self-ratings of anxiety, depression, and hostility were compared. No difference in the amount of improvement shown by the two groups appeared on any of the five measures employed, although a major placebo effect was evident on all of the criteria. The results argue against the use of electrosleep as a treatment for these symptoms except when it may be employed for its placebo value.
