electro-, electr-, electri-
(Greek > Latin: electric, electricity; from amber, resembling amber, generated from amber which when rubbed vigorously [as by friction], produced the effect of static electricity)
Electronics in our lives consists of numerous tools
Equipment which we use everyday relies on electronics to function including calculators, car controls, cameras, washing machines, medical scanners, mobile telephones, radar systems, computers; as well as many other applications or devices which are listed in this unit.
2. Pertaining to the technique of stimulating electrically the phrenic nerve in the neck in order to induce contraction of the hemidiaphragm.
2. An artificial respiration in which the nerves that control breathing are stimulated electrically through correctly placed electrodes. 3. An application of intermittent electrical stimuli to cutaneous electrodes over the phrenic nerves in the neck to rhythmically stimulate respiration or proper breathing.
The technique is used in patients whose respiratory center has been damaged.
The test identifies defects in the heart conduction system and arrhythmias which are otherwise not apparent. It also is used to analyze the effectiveness of antiarrhythimic drugs.
2. A branch of physiology that studies the relationship between electric phenomena and bodily processes.
3. The study of the electrical properties of living tissue.
4. The electric activity associated with a bodily part or function; such as, the effects of electrical stimulation on tissues, the production of electric currents by organs and tissues, and the therapeutic use of electric currents.
5. A branch of physiology concerned with determining the basic mechanisms by which electric currents are generated within living organisms.
6. The physiological production of electric phenomena in the normal human body.
2. A turning toward or a turning away from a source of electrical energy.
3. The movement of a cell or organism in response to an electrical stimulus.
They are usually thin wafer-like cells, the two surfaces of which are distinctly different.
2. To effect the transfer of one metal to another one by using electrolysis.
3. To apply a metallic coating on a conductive surface with electrolytic actions.
2. The electrodeposition of an adherent metal coating onto a conductive object for protection, decoration, or for other reasons; such as, securing a surface with properties or dimension that are different from those of the basic metal.
3. Electrodeposition (deposit on an electrode by electrolysis) of a metal or alloy from a suitable electrolyte solution.
The article to be plated is connected as the cathode in the electrolyte solution while direct electrical current is introduced through the anode which consists of the metal to be deposited.4. The art or process of depositing a coating or cover; for example, silver, gold, or nickel on an inferior metal, by means of an electric current.
The metal to be deposited on an article is usually used as the anode and the article to be plated as the cathode, in an electrolyte solution in which the plating metal is the cation.
2. One of the structural units of an electric organ of some fish, composed of thin, flattened plates of modified muscle that appear as two large, wafer-like, roughly circular, or rectangular surfaces.
