    Abstract: This work performs the metrological comparison of two groups of indicators estimating the average level of EEG–potentials. The indirect spectral indicators (ISI) based on amplitude spectrum and power spectrum are contrasted with natural indicators (NI) based on period-amplitude analysis, on EEG absolute value and on EEG envelope.

    Abstract: Melatonin use in clinical psychiatry currently is rife. Efficacy coupled with safety and lack of abuse potential render melatonin an attractive therapeutic option. Data accrues speaking to the idea of a pluripotent molecule beyond a sleep-aid. Here, authors would shed some light on melatonin use in psychiatry.

    Abstract: Hearing loss is the most common sensory disability in the world, hearing loss should be early diagnosed and treated since; it leads to speech and language disorders. Auditory brainstem response (ABR) or Auditory evoked potential (AEP) is a neurologic test done by an audiologist to measure auditory evoke potential. Different types of sedation levels... Show More
