    The use of an external radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic field to produce thermocoagulative lesions in neural tissue is presented. This technique, which originally was evaluated on animals and then extended to man, shows great promise as a new neurosurgical tool. It is a means by which neurological disease and intractable pain may be treated in a safe and simple manner. Heating is produced by t... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this article is to give a short mathematical introduction to the analysis of EEG signals by means of frequency-selective filters. Besides the resonant frequency, three characteristics of practical filters turn out to be of primary importance. These characteristics are: 1) the time selectivity (width of the window function), indicating the duration of the part of the signal under inv... View full abstract»

    An approach to the quantitative analysis of average evoked potential data is presented. An average evoked potential is assumed to be a sample from a multivariate normal distribution. Using this assumption, multivariate statistical techniques can be applied to test hypotheses about the similarity or difference of evoked potentials obtained under different conditions.

    The random fluctuations of human pupillary area provide an interesting example of a stochastic process in a biological system. Statistical theory and system analysis have guided the authors in performing experiments which reveal important properties involved in the random process. View full abstract»

    A telemetering system using an elongation sensor in conjunction with an implantable transmitter is described. The transmitter can be turned on and turned off by use of a pulsed radio-frequency source and has a useful life in excess of two months. The sensor is a newly developed device capable of giving a usable signal when elongated by as little as 0.05 mm. It is fabricated from commonly available... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this short conlmunlication is to describe a simple relatively inexpensive technique for the on-line display of single-unit neurophysiological data. The dot display is a compact method of viewing single-unit activity in response to repeated stimulus presentations. With a quick scan, one can answer such questions as: Does the unit respond? Is the response stable or is it changing? Wha... View full abstract»
