Abstract:

A simple surgical technique for implanting chronic electroencephalographic electrodes in the skull of the dog was devised to obtain frequent electroencephalograms EEG from the unsedated and unanesthetized animal. The technique utilized orthopedic screws as the implant electrodes and for securing the recording assembly over the frontal sinus. The electrode assemblies have been tolerated very well for up to 10 months in 17 of 20 dogs and have given reliable and very satisfactory EEG recordings, free of artifacts, in all animals, with a minimum use of physical restraint.
