What is electricity used for in the brain?
It has 5 watts.
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.

Yes, but only a tiny, tiny amount.
Without electricity, your brain wouldnâ??t work. Electricity is responsible for the nervous system sending signals to the brain, for your brain telling your muscles to mo…ve, and for synapses firing.
Yes, it has a slight amount of electricity to power up a lightbulb
I believe that it's an electroencephalograph.
Yes. The discipline is called electroconvulsive therapy, and (under proper medical supervision) can be used to treat mental disorders such as major depression, bipolar disorde…r, and schizophrenia. The layman's term for it is electroshock therapy, but many practitioners avoid that term, considering it somewhat derogatory.
What method of studying the brain involves the use of electrodes placed on the scalp to detect and measure electrical activity of the brain?
It travels through the optic nerve. All parts of the brain have a part of it.
Electrical stimulation of the brain, or deep brain stimulation, is effective in treating tremor in up to 88% of Parkinson disease patients
Electrical stimulation of the brain (ESB) is a relatively new technique used to treat chronic pain and tremors associated with Parkinson disease
Epilepsy is probably what you are referring to.
