This study examined whether 60 Hz magnetic field (MF) exposure alters intracellular calcium levels ([Ca(2+)](i)) in isolated bovine adrenal chromaffin cells, a classic model of neural responses. [Ca(2+)](i) was monitored by fluorescence video imaging of cells loaded with the calcium indicator fluo-4 during exposures to magnetic flux densities of 0.01, 0.1, 1.0, 1.4, or 2.0 mT. MFs generated by Helmholtz coils constructed from bifilar wire allowed both 60 Hz field and sham exposures. Following a… CONTINUE READING
