A method for obtaining electrocardiographic potential through thin cloth inserted between the measuring electrodes and the skin of a subject's dorsal surface when lying supine has been proposed. The method is based on capacitive coupling involving the electrode, the cloth, and the skin. Examination of a pilot device which employed the method revealed the(More)
Brain-stem auditory-evoked potentials were recorded in neurosurgical patients from surface electrodes applied to the VIIIth nerve, medulla, pons, midbrain and cortex; from depth electrodes in the thalamus; and from a movable electrode in the IVth, IIIrd, and lateral ventricles. The potentials recordable over the scalp within 10 ms after click stimulation(More)
Simultaneous bilateral recordings (C3 to A1 and C4 to A2) of brain stem auditory evoked responses have been studied in 67 supratentorial lesions, nine midbrain lesions, 21 intrinsic pontine lesions, and 23 extrinsic compressions of the pons. The responses in supratentorial lesions showed completely normal records. In midbrain lesions, wave V was(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine whether or not the potential distribution of the sympathetic skin response (SSR) on the palm and dorsum of the hand can be described by an equivalent current dipole (ECD) as an SSR source model. METHODS The SSR of 22 normal subjects were simultaneously obtained from two electrodes placed on the palm and the dorsum of hand,(More)
A new system has been developed for obtaining electrographic potential through thin underwear inserted between the measuring electrodes and the skin of a neonate or an infant when lying supine. The system is based on capacitive coupling involving the electrode, the underwear, and the skin. Validation of the system revealed the following: (1) the signal(More)
Sleep spindles in eight normal adults were analyzed automatically by a minicomputer. The accuracy of spindle detection was about 90%. Spindle wave frequency was measured by an approximation method for the spindle peaks; this method employed a quadratic equation on prior analog filtering. The accuracy of measurement was within 0.6 msec (SD 1). The average(More)
The EKG artifacts contaminating EEGs recorded by the balanced non-cephalic reference electrode system were removed from EEGs by using a device composed of a one channel averager and simple hardware. This device has the following advantages to the others which have been previously proposed: (1) it is possible by averaging of a few (i.e., 5) EKG artifacts in(More)

The purpose of this lecture is to review the development of current neurophysiology and the revised standard of society for clinical EEG. 1. The improvement of neurophysiological tests. 1) EEG and evoked potential: EEG and evoked potential testing includes the routine EEG recording, EEG monitoring in surgical operation, all night sleep polygraph for the(More)
