bioelectricity

[-ilektris′itē]
Etymology: Gk, bios + elektron, amber
electrical current that is generated by living tissues, such as nerves and muscles. The electrical potentials of human tissues, recorded by electrocardiograph, electroencephalograph, and similar sensitive devices, are used in diagnosing the condition of various vital organs.

bioelectricity

A term referring to the low-power electromagnetic currents which are normally produced by living systems—in particular, the flow of such currents through nerves and muscles n the form of action potentials.

bioelectricity

A general term for the low-power electric currents that normally flow within nerves and muscles

(bī'ō-ĕ-lek-tris'i-tē)
Of or relating to electric phenomena in living organisms.

bioelectricity

the electrical phenomena that appear in living tissues, as that generated by muscle and nerve.
