There's growing evidence that brain scans can detect depression. Just google "alpha asymmetry" and "depression." And brain scans can detect happiness. Richard Davidson at the University of Wisconsin has been using EEG and fMRI to compare the brains of Buddhist monks to the brains of people who only started to meditate recently. The monks' brains had far more activity in the left prefrontal cortex (an area of the brain associated with happiness) than the novice meditators' brains. And the monks' brains were able to generate tremendous amounts of gamma waves, while the novice meditators had weak gamma.
