Find more content on: Measuring electrical phenomena presents a number of challenges for biomedical signal measurement systems. The tiny, microvolt-level electrical pulses that signal a firing neuron or a muscle response are often obscured by high-amplitude noise or accompanied by significant dc potentials. Quite often, the signal of interest is a small, transient […]

Epileptic seizures, occasionally referred to as fits, is defined as a transient symptom of “abnormal excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain”. The outward effect can be as dramatic as a wild thrashing movement (tonic-clonic seizure) or as mild as a brief loss of awareness (absence seizure). It can manifest as an alteration in […]

Medical Electronics advances lead to increasing bioelectronic devices, biosensors and bioelectronic control system implants in human body. Popular example is electronic pacemaker for heart monitoring. But they need external power to work properly. Now they are relying on batteries which are implanted in human body along with the healthcare system. To avoid this, reaserchers are now focusing on techniques for power generation from human body itself. The most viable source of human power harvesting is the glocose content.

Diabetes patients needs frequent monitoring of blood glucose levels. So they must use a less expensive resource for monitoring their blood glucose levels so frequently. Missouri University of Science and Technology students recently devised a biological system that uses segments of DNA embedded in bacteria to detect glucose. The students believe their development could lead […]
