Latest Electrophysiology Stories
A Cleveland Clinic study has detected significant changes in the electroencephalogram (EEG) brain activity patterns of patients receiving chemotherapy.
In 1619, the pioneering astronomer Johannes Kepler published Harmonices Mundi in which he analyzed data on the movement of planets and asserted that the laws of nature governing the movements of planets show features of harmonic relationships in music.
New method offers automated way to record electrical activity inside neurons in the living brain
Tiny pores, or channels, embedded in cell membranes are critical to the healthy functioning of cells.
The discovery, using state-of-the-art informatics tools, increases the likelihood that it will be possible to predict much of the fundamental structure and function of the brain without having to measure every aspect of it.
The mechanism involved in the detection of hyperosmolarity by TRP channels is clarified, with a newly discovered molecule preventing apoptosis.
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...
- A morbid dread of being buried alive. Also spelled 'taphiphobia'.
