The study aim was to develop a model to generate cerebral evoked potentials (CEPs) by mechanical distention of the duodenum in rats. Twenty Sprague-Dawley rats were anaesthetized and the EEG recorded from the left and right somatosensory cortices (S1L, S1R). A balloon catheter was implanted into the duodenum. A pneumatic device, triggered by data(More)
The potential physiological effects of the electric lance are assessed, as used in Japanese whaling operations. Current densities are measured in the brains and hearts of six whales to which a controlled current of 5 A is applied by two electrodes inserted at various sites in the carcasses. The whales vary in size from 1.8 m (200 kg) to 16 m (40 t). The(More)
