An electrode is a conductor used to make contact with a nonmetallic part of a circuit (e.g. a skin, an electrolyte or a vacuum). The word was coined by the scientist Michael Faraday from the Greek words elektron (meaning amber, whence the word electricity is derived) and hodos, a way.
They are used in electrophysiology studies.
