Abstract: The present study examined whether Tai Chi exercise had treatment effects for major depression using objective measures. We used mismatch negativity (MMN) and early negative difference (Nde), one of event-related potentials (ERPs) as objective measures. We administered 24-style Tai Chi exercise twice a week during 3 months to a patient with major depression. Consequently, not only depressive symptoms but also small MMN and Nde amplitudes improved accompanying 24-style Tai Chi exercise. Therefore, Tai Chi could be recommended as a mental training method to ameliorate cognitive function, especially attention function.
