Example text

Recently, it was discovered that most of the electricity in the fat-pulse width in ECT was not needed, and in fact this contributed to toxicity (reviewed in Figure 4–4). Now we use ultra-brief pulse ECT, which is safer and probably just as effective. Fifty years of ECT research can be summarized as the discovery that one can simply change the pulse width to match what a neuron really needs to depolarize, and then deliver just that and no more. DURATION Duration describes the precise length of time of the stimulation.

However, this is perhaps one of the harder concepts to understand in the field of brain stimulation: although it can seem counterintuitive, a longer duration is not always more effective. The brain is dynamic, and different cascading events occur over varying time domains, some of which inhibit the effects of the initial stimulation. The duration domain is also one of the most interesting aspects of brain stimulation because it is fundamentally linked to neuronal plasticity. 27 Basic Electricity 10 Shorter duration Volts 5 0 –5 –10 10 Longer duration Volts 5 0 –5 –10 FIGURE 2–9.

On the other hand, if the activity is synchronized, the EEG summation will record low frequency, high amplitude waves. Electrical Brain FIGURE 3–6. 43 Synaptic activity produces slight electrical charge. When thousands of other cells contribute their small voltage, a signal becomes strong enough to be detected by the EEG electrode at the scalp. Source.
