Effects of extremely low-frequency magnetic field in the brain of rats

Investigator

Title of the project Effects of extremely low-frequency magnetic field in the brain of rats
Primary and secondary scientific disciplines Primary discipline: biology

Secondary discipline: physics

Description of the project Characteristics and main objectives of the research project:

·                     The main goal of the project is explaining the fundamental mechanisms of neuronal responses to ELF-MF

·                     The project integrates analyses on molecular, biochemical and behavioural levels, which will allow a better understanding of the ELF-MF effect on the organism

·                     The results will allow for estimate of the actual risk associated with exposure to ELF-MF and will lead to a new view on possible therapeutic properties of magnetic field

The project is conducted in cooperation with The University of Edinburgh, UK
