  • Changes in frequency of seizure-like events in stimulated cortical slices

    Mason, J.; Voss, Logan J.; Jacobson, Gregory M.; Elbohouty, Maher; Sleigh, James W.; Steyn-Ross, Moira L.; Steyn-Ross, D. Alistair (IEEE Xplore, 2010)
    Epilepsy affects nearly 3 million people in the United States alone. Given the fact that many people suffer from seizures that are intractable to pharmacological intervention, research groups are investigating the use of ...
  • Electrical Conductivity of Brain Cortex Slices in Seizing and Non-seizing States

    Elbohouty, Maher (University of Waikato, 2013)
    The electrical conductivity of thin living slices of mouse cerebral cortex is measured. Two only out of fifteen different attempting ways were effective. I have successfully measured the electrical conductivity of mouse ...
  • In vitro electrical conductivity of seizing and non-seizing mouse brain slices at 10 kHz

    Elbohouty, Maher; Wilson, Marcus T.; Voss, Logan J.; Steyn-Ross, D. Alistair; Hunt, Lynette Anne (Institute of Physics, 2013)
    The electrical conductivity of small samples of mouse cortex (in vitro) has been measured at 10 kHz through the four-electrode method of van der Pauw. Brain slices from three mice were prepared under seizing and non-seizing ...
  • Measuring the electrical impedance of mouse brain tissue

    Wilson, Marcus T.; Elbohouty, Maher; Lin, Oliver D.; Voss, Logan J.; Jones, Keith; Steyn-Ross, D. Alistair (2014)
    We report on an experimental method to measure conductivity of cortical tissue. We use a pair of 5mm diameter Ag/AgCl electrodes in a Perspex sandwich device that can be brought to a distance of 400 microns apart. The ...
