Animals were exposed to EMP with field intensity 25, 50, 100, 200 and 400 kV/m, and 25, 50, 100 and 200 pulses; duration between every two pulses is 2s. Firstly, an Evans blue (EB) and fluorescent microscope were used to observe the changes in the permeability of BBB after exposed to different combinations of the parameters. Secondly, an electron microscope was used to investigate the effects of EMP on the ultrastructure of different areas in the hippocampus and the marginal division of the… CONTINUE READING
