EEG Studies of Ketamine General Anesthesia

EEG Studies of Ketamine General Anesthesia

We are doing this research study to find out how and where ketamine acts in the brain. Ketamine is an anesthetic (a drug or agent used to decrease or eliminate the feeling of pain by putting you in an unconscious state). We will look at the brain using a machine that records the brain's electrical activity, called an electroencephalogram (EEG).

Pharmaceutical medication involved
Patients and healthy individuals accepted

Drug - Ketamine

Subjects' brain waves will be monitored by EEG recording under ketamine general anesthesia over the course of approximatel 60 minutes.
