A technique in which electrodes are attached to the head, thus enabling the activity of populations of the brain’s neurons to be monitored. The record of such activity is called an electroencephalogram (also abbreviated to EEG).
electron transport chain
Chain of molecules (electron carriers) in the inner mitochondrial membrane which are involved in oxidative phosphorylation. Electrons are transferred from NADH and FADH2 to these molecules, then from molecule to molecule along the chain, and are finally accepted by oxygen. ATP formation is coupled to this electron transfer.
A substance made up of only one type of atom.
