Cases of fiction or reality in the Escorpion series

Escuela Politcnica Nacional (EPN), Quito Ecuador

AbstractBased on different articles that have been

investigated analyze the scientific basis of certain medical cases
that happen in chapter 15 of the first season of the Scorpio
series .Which will discover if these scenes are fiction or happen in
reality, also we mention the status of these investigations
Index Terms Encephalogram, electrodes,
estimulation, transcranial stimulation, direct current.




HIS document is based in the chapter 15 of Scorpio

series, in this mentions three medical procedures:
transcranial stimulation, sensorial stimulation and find
old memories with a encephalogram, some one are reality and
exist a lot of investigation about this and others are alternative
methods using biomedical instrumentation.

In this chapter exist the one scene in which it is required to

remember a police what happened the day ha was shot and left
him with a brain disease, for it made the actors make a
transcranial stimulation using direct current with him.
In several studies in recent years it has come to the conclusion
that transcranial stimulation with direct current has proved to
be a good method to try to improve motor skills such as agility
of limb movements and cognitive abilities of Parkinson
patients. It has been very helpful for therapeutic treatments
and currently still studying the scope in these types of
This method is a non-invasive, it is a safe method and does
not cause pain. It should be noted that the number of sessions,
time of stimulation, the permanence of the cortical excitability
after the session and the location of the electrodes in the
cerebral cortex are clinically uncertain at the moment as was
sufficient with a small false move the patient so that there is
some significant damage. In this moment the scientist and
doctors are continue to be made strong and intense studies of
the lot of important subject.

In following image we can see this procces.

Send the first review on April 30, 2016 . This work was supported in The
National Polytechnic School by have the faculty of electrical and electronics
engineering and teaching about biomedical instrumentation.

Side effects after treatment that have occurred are hoarseness ,

shortness of breath and coughing , these depend on the dose
and intensity of stimulation, a portion of patients managed to
hang with the side effect during stimulation but equally
decreases with Over time from months to years , clinically it
not yet has been able to explain this fact.
Several of the studies and tests performed with the have
improved motor skills after treatment healthy volunteers.
several studies have shown that limiting the healthy side of the
brain and stimulate the damaged side improves healing , that
is, when when the anode is placed on the injury , should
stimulate neurons under them , the same applies to the
cathode. .
To detect memories in the memory of the police, a machine
was used electroencephalogram . In reality this is not as true
as this machine is used to detect disorders and abnormalities
related to electrical activity of the brain and does not
collaborate much to locate memories. The procedure is to
track and record brain waves. The electrodes on the scalp are
placed and then signals are sent to a computer to record the

The transcranial stimulation is done in reality and so far has
achieved good results, actually there are several studies on the
subject, it is helpful this technique.
To practice transcranial stimulation is needed a lot of watch
out for dont have secondary effects.

The encephalogram exam is used by detecting pathologies,

dont use for recording old memories
