Bright light therapy for symptoms of anxiety and depression in focal epilepsy: randomised controlled trial
Because depression and anxiety have “common psychiatric comorbidities in epilepsy,” researchers tested depression treatment with light on epileptic patients. 101 subjects had “medically intractable focal epilepsy.” Researchers treated 51 subjects with a high-intensity light box, and 50 subjects with a low-intensity light box. Each subject received one treatment per day. Only 58 subjects completed the trial. Depression and anxiety scores were significantly better for both groups. The study included no placebo controls.
