On the seventh postoperative day, we attached electrodes to the quadriceps muscle again to detect the bioelectric potential along the long axis of the rectus femoris muscle belly (Figure 4(a)).
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." ( ANI )
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.

(10) Bioelectric potentials are currents produced by or occurring within living organisms.
In the physiological environment, bioelectric potentials are carried in electrolyte media in the form of ionic current and the purpose of the neural electrode is to transduce these bioelectric signals into electrical signals [9], Conducting polymers can pass electronic as well as ionic charges thanks to their molecular structure and have become promising candidate materials for the modification of electrode surface [10, 11].
