Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Neurogenetics Christine Klein, Kishore R. Views Read Edit View history.
It can be used as a textbook for third or fourth year university students and as a source of reference. The term can also refer to the ability of living cells, tissues, and organisms to produce electrical fields and the response of cells to electromagnetic fields.
Bioelectromagnetism: Principles and Applications of Bioelectric and Biomagnetic Fields
The difference between corresponding bioelectric and biomagnetic methods is discussed. Galvani and contemporaries regarded muscle activation as resulting from an electrical fluid or substance in the nerves. Overview Description Table of Contents. Chapter 2 Bioflectromagnetism and Muscle Cells. The book shows, that all subfields of bioelectromagnetism obey the same basic laws and they are closely tied together through the principle of reciprocity.
Electric and Magnetic Stimulation of the Heart Chapter 5 Synapses, Receptor Cells, and Brain. Oxford Scholarship Online This book is available as part of Oxford Scholarship Online – view abstracts and keywords at book and chapter level.
A Very Short Introduction J.

Shettleworth, Paul Bloom, and Lynn Nadel. The book includes about carefully drawn illustrations and references. If very strong pulses at a rapid rate are delivered to the brain, the induced currents can cause convulsions much like in the original electroconvulsive therapy.
Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. Theoretical Methods in Bioelectromagnetism This book provides a general view of bioelectromagnetism and describes it as an independent discipline. Retrieved 19 March This is accompanied by a discussion of both the theories and experiments which were contributed to the development of the field.
Chapter 7 Volume Source and Volume Conductor. The physiological origin of bioelectric and biomagnetic signal is discussed in detail. American Journal of Psychiatry. Chapter 26 Impedance Tomography. Chapter 24 Cardiac Defibrillation. It is shown that, based on the reciprocity theorem, these are identical and further, that these procedures apply equally well for biomagnetic considerations. Electromagnetic radiation in the intermediate frequency range has found a place in modern medical practice for the treatment of bone healing and for nerve stimulation and regeneration.
This can lead to biological effects ranging from muscle relaxation as produced by a diathermy device to burns. This book aims to help with the understanding of the properties of existing bioelectric and biomagnetic measurements and stimulation methods, and to aid with the designing of new systems.
Authors Affiliations are at time of print publication. Many behavioral effects at different intensities have been reported from exposure to magnetic fields, particularly with pulsed magnetic fields.

Areas of study include electrical or electromagnetic fields produced by living cellstissues or organismsincluding bioluminescent bacteria ; for example, the cell membrane potential and the electric currents that flow in nerves and musclesas a result of action potentials. A whole-body exposure to a pulsed magnetic field was found to alter standing balance and pain perception in other studies.
Search my Subject Specializations: Most of the molecules in the human body interact weakly with electromagnetic fields in the radio frequency or extremely low frequency bands. Publications Pages Publications Pages.
This book provides a general view of bioelectromagnetism and describes it as an independent discipline. Some usually aquatic animals, such as sharks, have acute bioelectric sensors providing a sense known as electroreceptionwhile migratory birds navigate in part by orienteering with respect to the Earth’s magnetic field. Galvani coined the term animal electricity to describe the phenomenon, while contemporaries labeled it galvanism. Electric and Magnetic Stimulation of Neural Tissue Bioelectromagneticsalso known as bioelectromagnetismis the study of the interaction between electromagnetic fields and biological entities.
