THe average number of responses for intraop monitoring using SEPs is __ to __ 1000, 2000
__ (arm/eg) SEPs are often used during carotid endarterectomy to evaluate CBF arm
SNAPs stands for ____ sensory nerve action potential
SNAPs usually have a large __ (negative/positive) peak followed by a smaller __ (negative/positive) peak negative, positive
The three areas used to stimulate the the trigeminal nerve gums, lips, mental nerve
The positive peak for the trigeminal nerve is about __ msec after stimulation 20
Electrical stimulation of mixed or sensory nerves can induce muscle activation beginning __ msec after the stimulus 15
The __ is presented by presenting two stimuli, one more common than the other, with the patient attending to the rarer stimuli ("oddball paradigm") P300
Recordings for the P300 are made over an electrode on the __ or __ head and a reference central, posterior
The P300 is sometimes referred to as __ P3
The posited site of the P300 is in the __ __ lobe medial temporal
____ is an evoked potential contingent on a ptient's conscious perception of a stimulus; it is performed by presenting pairs of stimuli separated by 1-2 sec contingent negative variation
During ___ EPs, a patient is presented with a first signal as a warning (often a click) followed by an imperative (such as a flashing light) that requires a response (such as pushing a button) contingent negative variation
The CNV __ (Will/will not) develop if an imperative stimulus follows a minority of warning stimuli will not
Recordings for CNV are made between the __ and __ ear, vertex
Recordings for CNV require averaging __ or more responses 10
The normal CNV begins about __ msec after the warning stimulus and has a maximum about __ msec after the first stimulus 400, 800
CNV is maximal at the __ of the head vertex
Averaging the potentials that precede movement shows a rising negative potential that begins ~ __ second prior to movement 1
Typical latency for P300 ranges from __ - __ msec 250, 600
Three factors that increase latency for P300 attention, intensity, time to distinguish stimulus
P300 begins at age___ 3 months
As children become older, P300 begins more restricted to the __ lobe parietal
Causes of prolonged P300 AD, ESRD, ETOH, MR, PD, schizophrenia
The two names for the potential seen prior to voluntary movement bereitschaftpotential, readiness potential
The __ can be used to diagnose psychogenic movement disorders; it is seen 0.5 to 1 second prior to voluntary movement readiness
TMS produces an effect of __ - __ Tesla 1, 2
TMS most likely acts at bends in __ fibers of brain U
TMS acts at axon fibers that are __ (parallel/perpendicular) to the surface of the brain parallel

___ in MEPs is the difference between cortical latency and spinal latency central motor conduction time
Central motor conduction time in MEPs is the difference between __ and __ latency cortical, spinal
__ is usually associated with absent MEPs ALS
