bioelectrorheology (s) (noun)
An electric phenomena associated with material flow and deformation in living systems or the flow of materials derived directly from the nerve and muscle tissues.
A reference to the changes in flow properties that occur in certain fluids exposed to electric fields.
1. A specialist in the branch of physics concerned with the flow and change of shape of matter that is determined by electrical fields.
2. Someone who studies the flow of fluids under the influence of electric fields.
1. The study of the flow of fluids under the influence of electric fields.
2. The way in which fluid flow is influenced by an electric field.
The science of the flow of blood in relation to the pressures, flow, volumes, and resistances in blood vessels, especially in terms of blood viscosity and red cell deformation in the microcirculation.
A rheostat in which resistance to the flow of electric current is provided by water.
rheobase, rheobasis, rheobasic
The minimal or liminal electric stimulus that will produce a response or that is able to cause excitation of a issue, e.g., muscle or nerve.
A metallic wire used for regulating the resistance of a circuit, or varying the strength of an electric current, by inserting a greater or less length of it into the circuit.
The technique of measuring blood flow of the brain; commonly used to denote impedance rheoencephalography which uses changes in electrical impedance and resistance as a measure of flow.
