10-12 watts, enough to power a flashlight
Your brain uses as much power as a ten watt battery. -Helen Brosnan
Neurons do use electricity to communicate. When a neuron communicates, the usual sequence of events is: 1) binding of neurotransmitters to receptors on the cell body (soma) or… dendritic tree; 2) depending on the ligand/receptor in question, the membrane may become more or less permeable to certain ions (such as sodium, potassium, chloride etc), which changes the electrical potential difference across the cell membrane; 3) if the potential difference increases enough, then the cell will 'fire'; sending an 'action potential' (i.e., self-propagating electrical current across the membrane) from its axon hillock all the down to it's synaptic terminal, where it will then release it's neurotransmitters - and the process starts all over over again for recipient cells.
About 10-12 watts, so not much. But to use that power would leave next to none to run your body, lol. So in my opinion, unless there is a way to slowly exercise the brain, to …slowly compensate and replace the energy you are trying to harness then it would be a pointless battle. But on the other hand our body generates a lot of thermal, and kinetic energy, which could if done right be upscaled to power lots of awesome things. Andrew R - AKA Extile
Nerve cell signaling is an electro-chemical event. Thus, 'electricity' is used during cell-to-cell communication.
There is no electricity inside of your brain.
\nWhen too much current flows through the fuse, it heats up and melts. Hence, the circuit is broken and the current does not flow through the circuit or the gadget.
If "dead" means brain dead then you've answered your own question, there is no activity left.
It is any current of amplitude sufficient to terminate lifefunctions.
I is the symbol for electric current. It is measured in amps, or amperes (same thing, longer word). An ammeter is used to measure current.
Current is a simple descriptor, I was taught to always use it in school as leaving it off was an error. For instance you cannot say A for AC (Alternating Current) as A is ampe…rage.
The easiest way to answer your question is to point out that every device you own or use, which you plug into the wall or which contains a battery, makes available to you …some use of electrical current. Whatever you use each of those devices for is a use of current electricity.
Electrical current is measured in Amperes which is abbreviated toamps. When dealing with formulae the letter I is used to representcurrent, for example: Power = Voltage Ã… Current = volts Ã amps = V Ã I Small currents in electrical engineering use the lower case i; thiscan cause confusion with the lower case i that mathematicians usefor â-1, so they use j for â-1 instead.
Here are a few examples... - The electrical current is monitored. - The current of electricity is measured in volts. - The electrical current of telephone wiring is 82 volt…s. They may not be worded the same, but they have the same initial meaning.
Thier electrical current will be from the solar energy converter to electricity.
Yes or No.I have no idea
