Investigating membrane breakdown of neuronal cells exposed to nonuniform electric fields by finite-element modeling and experiments

Abstract

High electric field strengths may induce high cell membrane potentials. At a certain breakdown level the membrane potential becomes constant due to the transition from an insulating state into a high conductivity and high permeability state. Pores are thought to be created through which molecules may be transported into and out of the cell interior… (More)
