interference

 [in″ter-fēr´ens]
1. opposition to or hampering of some activity.
2. impairment of cardiac impulse conduction due to refractoriness of the tissue; the refractoriness is a physiological response to passage of a preceding impulse.
3. a premature contact point on the occlusal surface of the teeth.
electromagnetic interference electrical signals of nonphysiological origin that may affect pacemaker function; they can either inappropriately inhibit pacemaker output or trigger unnecessary pulses. Pacemakers with bipolar leads are less sensitive to this.
occlusal i's areas of interference on teeth that hamper proper occlusion and smooth, gliding, harmonious jaw movements.

electromagnetic interference

Cardiac pacing Radiated or conducted electrical or magnetic energy that can interfere with/disrupt pulse generator function

It can distinguish between upstream and downstream movements of fish, and can also eliminate "counts" caused by debris in the river and electrical interference.
Glitches can include buggy software, circuitry that's randomly influenced by electrical interference and shorts caused by microscopic "whiskers" that sprout from solder.
However, since electrical interference from the CFL ballast can reduce the operating range of your transmitter, they recommend always using an incandescent bulb.
Birkholz and coworkers suggested that "in a dynamic magnetic field, rapidly switched magnetic gradients can induce electrical interference in monitoring leads" and that "artifacts may vary in their frequency, and time of occurrence, even mimicking atrial flutter, ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation" (2).
