A low-noise flexible integrated system for recording and analysis of multiple electrical signals during sleep-wake states in rats

A low-noise flexible system for the simultaneous recording and analysis of several electrical signals (EEG, ECG, EMG, and diaphragm EMG) from the same rat was constructed for studying changes in physiological functions during the sleep-wake cycle. The hardware in the system includes a multichannel amplifier, a video camera, a timer code generator, and a PC. A miniature buffer headstage with high-input impedance connected to a 6-channel amplifier was developed. All electrical activities devoid of 60 Hz interference could be consistently recorded by our low-cost amplifier with no shielding treatment. The analytical software was established in the LabVIEW environment and consisted of three major frames: temporal, spectral, and nonlinear analyses. These analytical tools demonstrated several distinct utilities. For example, the sleep-wake states could be successfully distinguished by combining temporal and spectral analyses. An obvious theta rhythm during rapid-eye-movement sleep (REMS) was recorded from parietal to occipital cortical areas but not from the frontal area. In addition, two types of sleep apnea with/without cardiac arrhythmias were observed under REMS condition. Moreover, the evoked potentials of the primary somatosens...Continue Reading

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.


Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
