Since the magnetic field penetrates tissue, it can be generated outside of applicatios head to induce currents within, causing transcranial magnetic stimulation TMS. This book looks at the application of engineering science and technology to biological cells and tissues that are electrically conducting and excitable.

Account Options Sign in. 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.

Chapter 4 Active Behavior of the Or. Instead of one strong electric shock through the head as in ECT, a large number of relatively weak pulses are delivered in TMS therapy, typically at the rate of about 10 pulses per second. Subscriber Login Email Address.

Chapter 23 Cardiac Pacing. This can lead to biological effects ranging from muscle relaxation as produced by a diathermy device to burns. IX Other Bioelectromagnetic Phenomena. Some usually applucations 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.
