At the Pathological Laboratory

When  a specimen is sent to the laboratory for histological examination, the pathologist  will fix the entire  tissue immediately, with the help of  suitable fixative solutions. In this way the specimen   will preserve as closely as possible the form which it had during life.

The Electroencephalogram is performed with the placement of electrodes covering the scalp of the patient. They transmit the electric potentials produced during the brain function. The brain waves are recorded with ink on a moving paper (44). The photic stimulator (44A, 44B) produces alternating light beam with increasing frequency in front of the eyes affecting the brain function.
