- (physiology) The production or condition of tetanus.
- 1866, Dr. Johannes Ranke, “Tetanus.—A Physiological Study”, in Dublin quarterly journal of medical science, volume 42, page 453:
- Muscle which has been tetanized produces less acid than muscle which has been at rest; in fact the tetanization of muscle seems to consume the acid-forming matter.
- 2007, Dr. Stewart A. Factor, Parkinson's Disease: Diagnosis & Clinical Management, second edition:
- The position of the internal capsule is determined with microelectrodes by its characteristic absence of somatodendritic action potentials and the tetanization produced by stimulating corticospinal tract fibers.
- 2015, Detlev Boison, Homeostatic Control of Brain Function, page 132:
- Heterosynaptic, long-term plastic changes can be induced in hippocampal and neocortical neurons by intracellular tetanization—bursts of spikes evoked by short, depolarizing pulses applied through the recording electrode.
