35 psychiatric inpatients with diagnosed with unipolar or bipolar depression were given tests of memory, depression, and affective aprosody prior to the initiation of pulse unilateral nondominant ECT. Following ECT treatment, patients were given the same battery of tests using alternate forms of the same tests. The results of this study showed significant treatment effects in all three dependent variables without significant interaction between variables. The implications of these findings were discussed. © 1992.
