  2. In the non-depression group, significant right dominant asymmetries were observed in the temporal, posterior cerebral, and cerebellum. In the depression group, a significant left dominant asymmetry was observed in the central, and significant right dominant asymmetries were observed in the temporal and posterior cerebral.
