Electrical stunning and exsanguination decrease the extracellular volume in the broiler brain as studied with brain impendance recordings.

Abstract

Electrical stunning in the process of slaughtering poultry is used to induce unconsciousness and immobilize the animal for easier processing. Unconsciousness is a function of brain damage. Brain damage has been studied with brain impedance recordings under ischemic conditions. This experiment studies brain impedance as a response to a general epileptiform… (More)
