Mechanisms of electromagnetic influences and effects on membrane systems in neurons and cardiomyocytes
* Corresponding author
The aims of our studies was to discover responses of the membrane systems in neurons and cardiomyocytes as well as mechanisms of influences and effects produced by the broadband-spectrum stochastic electromagnetic radiation (BBSS EMR) on them according to data on membrane potential (MP) levels and action potential (AP) parameters obtained by us.
Materials and methods
Neurons from the isolated central neural system (CNS) of the snail Helix pomatia were selected to serve as a model for our experiments. We applied an electrophysiological technique implying recording of intracellular potentials of a neuron.
Results and discussion
We are pioneers in the world science who succeeded in obtaining objective evidence for the effects made by the broadband-spectrum stochastic electromagnetic radiation (BBSS EMR) on intracellularly recorded electrophysiological properties of a CNS neuron.
The regulation of the functional state of a neuron in the neuron network with the use of a non-invasive remote method of a control action has been objectively shown herein. According to our philosophy, a neuron is considered as an analogue of the formation of a transmembrane potential by a cardiomyocyte and at the same time as the basic model of the neural cellular auto-regulation of the phase-structured performance of the cardiovascular system.
