Individual monitoring of EEG and evoked potentials is gradually becoming standard in neurosurgery: compressed power spectra during carotid endarterectomy, brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) during posterior fossa surgery, and somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) mainly during spinal cord surgery. In this paper, a new technique is described in(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate brain bioelectrical activity during hyperbaric oxygenation by continuous and simultaneous monitoring of electroenccphalographic and bimodal (auditory, somatosensory) evoked potentials. Multivariable recordings (electroencephalogram, brainstem auditory evoked potentials, early somatosensory evoked potentials,(More)
Major metabolites of octopamine and tyramine in the Limulus nervous system are identified here as gamma-glutamyl octopamine and gamma-glutamyl tyramine. We show that these conjugates are normal products of amine metabolism in Limulus, and that they are normally present in octopamine-rich Limulus tissues. The synthesis of these conjugates is not restricted(More)
EEG was recorded simultaneously from several scalp regions in 5 normal subjects and analysed, using a PDP 11/45 computer by means of an autoregressive model. Significant intra- and interhemispheric differences in the peak frequencies within the alpha band were observed, up to 0.8 c/sec. Local modality -dependent increases in the peak frequency were also(More)
The variations in amplitude of visual evoked potentials (VEPs) and parallel changes in amount of event-related desynchronization (ERD) of the rhythmic activity within the alpha band were studied in central derivations of scalp EEG, in 10 normal subjects. Two methods were used to estimate the amplitude of VEPs in small groups of 10 responses: (1) inverse and(More)
Analysis of the transit time of a pulse wave is a possibility for the continuous observation of the changes in blood pressure activity. With invasive procedures, the interval between two notable events on pressure pulse waveforms, which is known as the pulse transit time, is often calculated. Using the second heart sound, the pre-ejection period and the(More)
For use on an Apple Macintosh PC, a software packet was developed with the aid of which medical students can learn all about primary open-angle glaucoma; at the same time, it is also highly suitable for supplementing lectures. The subject is subdivided into the three sections anatomy, pathology and clinical picture. All the possibilities of computer(More)
A variety of monitoring systems is available for special fields of clinical application and scientific research. Whenever requirements change data acquisition and handling of signal analysis have to be adapted or even completely new structured, especially in real-time applications. This can be a time consuming procedure. In order to be able to focus on the(More)
