Effect of electrical stunning on brain function in commercial rabbits was evaluated in electrophysiological studies. In addition to measuring duration of spontaneous physical activity and times to signs of recovery, electrocorticogram (ECOG) recordings and evoked responses were analysed following electrical stunning with 100 V for 1 s in eight rabbits. Epileptiform and other types of activity indicating insensibility were observed in the ECOG. Evoked responses were absent from 24 to 204 s… CONTINUE READING
