A new exposure system for the in vitro detection of GHz field effects on neuronal networks

Different ideas exist about possible targets for biological effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF). One of the favourite systems are the membranes of nerve cells, e.g. in the central nervous system. Our aim is to clarify whether EMF exposure may induce athermal effects. In the experiments, direct electrophysiological in vitro measurements are conducted on neuronal networks exposed to EMF, i.e. possible changes in the action potential patterns produced by the networks are detected. The technique was developed as an alternative to the common patch-clamp approach.
