We asked the patient to simulate the knee-extension training exercises, which were to be performed postoperatively, by performing 10 knee extensions with HAL-SJ assistance; the muscle that exhibited the highest bioelectric potential amplitude was used.
Keith Spaulding, ND, MAc and coauthors assessed the electrophysiological differences between actual and nearby (or sham) acupuncture points in the article "Acupuncture Needle Stimulation Induces Changes in Bioelectric Potential.
As a result the measured self potential is a sum of streaming potential occurring on the boundary mineral--fluid, diffusion potential and connected gradient of ion concentration and mineralization potential (arising from ion content), thermoelectric potential (resulting from thermal gradient) and bioelectric potential (presence of plant roots).
In turn, cholinergic deficits lead to changes in synaptic bioelectric potential, which may be picked up in EEG signals.
SAN ANTONIO -- Half of all benign breast biopsies in premenopausal women with palpable mammographically suspicious breast lesions could safely be avoided through the use of breast bioelectric potential measurements, Dr.

Materials and Method: A total of 30 hypothyroid patients of both sexes underwent polysomnography to assess sleep based on bioelectric potentials - electroencephalogram, electromyogram, and electrooculogram.
