in vivo EEG and EMG

EEG-EMG recordings Electroencephalograph (EEG) and electromyograph (EMG) monitoring is the gold standard technology for monitoring sleep and brain seizures. Currently sleep is not routinely measured in animals subject to various drug treatments, disease models, or genetic alteration partly due to the difficulty associated with the use of EEG and EMG. EEG recording of wakeful activity, sleep and abnormal brain electrophysiology (e.g., seizures) are detailed in our publications.

Model Assay Name Measurements
EEG/EMG recordings 1. Electric activity of the brain 1. Wake
2. Electric activity of the muscle 2. REM (Rapid eye movement sleep)
  3. NREM (slow wave sleep)
  4. Abnormal activity (e.g.,seizures)
