Sample text

One way to improve it is by appropriate adjustment of the amplifier’s sensitivity. For instance, when recording evoked potentials, activity that exceeds 100 µV can be safely considered of noncerebral origin—it could be muscle activity, or electrical interference—and thus should be rejected. However, if the sensitivity is too high a large number of single trials are rejected; if it is too low, the recordings are contaminated by large amounts of noise. As a rule of thumb, in the case of evoked potentials the sensitivity should be such that approximately 10% of the single trials are rejected.

In general, there are two kinds of montages, bipolar, and referential. In a bipolar montage each channel involves the recording between two active scalp electrodes. These montages typically include chains running anteroposteriorly or transversely, using the same linkage over both hemispheres [12]. In a referential montage, on the other hand, each channel involves the recording between an active electrode and an “inactive” one, known as the reference. Theoretically, the reference is completely silent and has a zero potential.

5 Activity of Muscle Cells Muscles are composed of large numbers of muscle fibers or cells that have the ability to temporarily shorten their length by converting chemical energy into mechanical work. Synchronized contraction of muscle cells produces a movement of some part of the body. The control and coordination of these movements is a major function of the nervous system. For a skeletal muscle to contract, it must first be stimulated, that is, it must receive an impulse from a motor neuron.
