Abstract

The brains of 3 dogs were studied by electron-microscopy after electrical application. One was given ten hours of electrical anesthesia over a five-week period, another electroshock therapy ten times in five weeks, and the lungs ventilated during convulsions to avoid hypoxemia. The third animal acted as a control and no electrical current was applied. Sections from the brains of all three were examined by electronmicroscopy. There were no changes attributable to the passage of electrical current.
