Abstract

The measurement of the electric impedance of living cells and its correlation with particular electrochemical pathways is basic to the understanding of the initial response of biologic tissue to low level electromagnetic fields. Characterization of living cell membranes as electrical networks provides insights into the underlying physical mechanisms of various biological processes. It should also lead to the ability to predict and modulate various bioeffects from the application of pulsating electromagnetic induced current (PEMIC) to biological systems, both in vitro and in vivo. A practical technique for estimating the membrane impedance of isolated living cells is described.
