Implanting pups can be tricky, yet their value as neonatal models of human disease is key.
Short-term Electroencephalography or EEG measurements are typically performed in synchrony with well-controlled, environmental, stimuli. Signal-averaging measurements, of this type, are known as Event Related Potentials (ERPs).
An EEG recording can be short or long-term. Shorter-term, signal-averaged, EEG measurements are typically used to evaluate precognitive and cognitive processes with respect to specific stimuli.
