Investigation Of The Behavior Of Electric Current In Human Cells Under The Impact Of Pulsating Magnetic Field
Our body works by means of electrical conduction and we are able to move by this conduction. Some neurological diseases can arise due to the troubles experienced in electrical conduction. One of those diseases is Cerebral Palsy (CP). This disease is the result of irregularities in the electrical activity of the human body and weaknesses in the cerebellum. When this poor electrical conduction and irregularity ceases to exist, the symptoms of the disease begin to fade. The electrical shock therapy applied for the treatment of the disease works but is a short-term treatment and does not give long-term results.
It was aimed to increase the electric current on the cells without a physical effect and was worked to obtain an induction on the cells by the pulsating magnetic field. Through induction, it is aimed to increase the current on the cells via a pulsating magnetic field. During our controlled experiments, low electrical currents were applied to the HeLa cells in culture. Cell cultures were also exposed to the pulsating magnetic field and the effect of the magnetic field on the cells’ electric current was investigated. The current over the induced cells is increased and electrical activity irregularity is eliminated. Under the constant potential difference, the frequency of the magnetic field applied to the coil is systematically changed and the optimal frequency value is found.
As a result of the experiments, applying different frequencies to the cells with constant potential difference enabled us to work on a wide spectrum of magnetic field. It has been observed that at an optimal frequency, the electric current is increased. The values found may be used as pioneering work in order to overcome electrical conduction problems in organs such as the brain, the cerebellum and the spinal cord.
