We report on a novel mouse in vitro brain slice preparation that contains intact callosal axons connecting anterior cingulate cortices (ACC). Callosal connections are demonstrated by the ability to regularly record epileptiform events between hemispheres (bilateral events). That the correlation of these events depends on the callosum is demonstrated by the(More)
A peak-detection method is described for computer analysis of the the electroencephalogramme (EEG). The technique consists of measuring the amplitude and time interval between successive maxima (peaks) and minima (troughs) in the signal. A critical feature of the peak-detection algorithm is the inclusion of an amplitude threshold criterion which eliminates(More)
