“The Sodium Theory Revisited” reveals newest developments in nerve function research. UNITED KINGDOM (PRWEB) May 24, 2013 The sodium theory has been elegantly proposed by A.L. Hodkin, A.F. Huxley and B. Katz in the early 1950s, after their experiments on Plymouth squids, to account for the role of sodium and potassium ions in nerve functions. Since then, the electrophysiological techniques and the data acquisition techniques have known amazing developments. In The Sodium Theory...

Worm EEG Developed To Test The Effects Of Drugs
2013-05-23 12:26:15

[ Watch The Video Worm Brain Reader ] University of Southampton Scientists from the University of Southampton have developed a device which records the brain activity of worms to help test the effects of drugs. NeuroChip is a microfluidic electrophysiological device, which can trap the microscopic worm Caenorhadbitis elegans and record the activity of discrete neural circuits in its 'brain' - a worm equivalent of the EEG. C. elegans have been enormously important in...

Mobile Devices Using Mind-Control Being Tested By Samsung
2013-04-21 06:02:22

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Samsung is joining forces with an engineering professor at the University of Texas at Dallas to work on a device which could allow you to control your smartphone or tablet computer with your brain. According to Susan Young of the MIT Technology Review, the device in question is an electroencephalography (EEG) cap which could be used to launch an application, select a specific person out of a list of contacts or a song from a...

Scientists Probe Source Of A Pulsing Signal In The Sleeping Brain
2013-04-18 13:35:40

Technische Universitaet Muenchen New findings clarify where and how the brain's "slow waves" originate. These rhythmic signal pulses, which sweep through the brain during deep sleep at the rate of about one cycle per second, are assumed to play a role in processes such as consolidation of memory. For the first time, researchers have shown conclusively that slow waves start in the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain responsible for cognitive functions. They also found that such a wave...

Sleep Better And Improve Your Memory With Sound Stimulation
2013-04-12 08:10:02

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study reveals that the slow oscillations in brain activity that occur during slow-wave sleep are critical for retaining memories. Playing sounds synchronized to the rhythm of the slow brain oscillations of sleeping people enhances the oscillations, the researchers found, and boosts memory retention. The study, published in Neuron, demonstrates an easy and noninvasive method of influencing human brain activity to improve sleep...

Brainwave Passwords Are The Next Futuristic Thing
2013-04-10 19:28:17

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers are working on a new way to provide security where instead of typing a password, you simply think of it. The team presented their findings at the 2013 Workshop on Usable Security at the Seventeenth International Conference on Financial Cryptography and Data Security in Okinawa, Japan. They conducted several experiments to determine whether their ideas were feasible. Researchers used the Neurosky MindSet for their...

EEG could be more widely used to identify treatable causes of common disorders in hospital patients, say researchers in Mayo Clinic Proceedings A retrospective study of patients who had in-hospital electroencephalography (EEG) has established that EEG is a valuable tool that could be deployed more widely to identify treatable causes of impaired consciousness in the hospital setting. The study is published in the April issue of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings. Altered mental status (AMS) and...

Electrocardiography
2013-04-30 09:55:53

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
2012-12-31 11:47:45

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...
