(1) Many subjects have a negative spike in the beginning of a saccade in electro-oculographic signals.
(2) The additional value of these methods, especially of the intensive monitoring, lies also in the possibility of compiling new knowledge about semiology and electro-clinical correlation of epileptic seizures, possible trigger mechanisms and long-term therapeutic effects.
(3) Dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT) and the corresponding metabolites dopac, HVA and HIAA were determined in the corpus striatum of the rat between day 1 and day 21 pn by HPLC with electro-chemical detection.
(4) A multicenter study of electro-ejaculation is currently in process in the USA, but as these are limited experiments, the preliminary results do not permit to draw any conclusion.
(5) Since no evaluation of the relative merits of electro and chemical cautery has been reported, a prospective randomized study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of electro-cautery and cautery with silver nitrate.
(6) Recordings were made of all-night electroencephalogram, electro-oculogram, submental electromyogram, and muscle potentials from both forearms.
(7) We studied effects of this anomaly on ocular motility using electro-oculography and the magnetic search-coil technique.
