Latest Electrophysiology Stories
While ensuring the safety of high school and college athletes is hardly controversial, the method and associated costs of doing so are hotly debated.
How our brains encode thoughts, such as perceptions and memories, at the cellular level is one of the biggest puzzles in neuroscience today.
As reported in the journal Science, physicists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and the University of Michigan have shown that synthetic membrane channels can be constructed through "DNA nanotechnology."
Chinese researchers have developed a method to transform brain waves into music that closely resembles something a human composer would write.
Listening abilities depend on rhythms in the brain
Surgeons have been using general anesthesia since the 19th century, but until now physicians and neurologists didn’t know exactly how brain activity correlates to the loss of consciousness.
The brain holds in mind what has just been seen by synchronizing brain waves in a working memory circuit, an animal study supported by the National Institutes of Health suggests.
Electrocardiography, sometimes called ECG or EKG, is a measurement of the electrical activity of the heart as the linear process unfolds. With the use of electrodes that are attached to the skin, this non-invasive test can provide vast information as to the patient’s status. By leaving the electrodes attached, the patient’s status can be monitored over intervals of time and recorded on the device. This data can be sent electronically for consults about potential treatments without delay....
Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
