Slowing of Scalp EEG After Electrical Stimulation of Amygdala in Man
Electrical Stimulation (60 Hz) of the amygdala in anaesthetized patients caused a predominantly ipsilateral slowing of the scalp EEG. The slowing appeared a few seconds after cessation of Stimulation and lasted for 2–3 min. The frequency of the slow waves was 1–1.5 Hz and the amplitude 200–400 µV.
