e·lec·tro·phys·i·ol·o·gy

(ē-lek'trō-fiz'ē-ol'ŏ-jē),
The branch of science concerned with electrical phenomena that are associated with physiologic processes. Electrical phenomena are prominent in neurons and effectors.

electrophysiology

/elec·tro·phys·i·ol·o·gy/ (-fiz″e-ol´ah-je)
1. the study of the mechanisms of production of electrical phenomena, particularly in the nervous system, and their consequences in the living organism.
2. the study of the effects of electricity on physiological phenomena.

electrophysiology

n.
1. The branch of physiology that studies the relationship between electric phenomena and bodily processes.
2. The electric activity associated with a bodily part or function.
