[Effects of different frequency electromagnetic fields on the differentiation of midbrain neural stem cells].
20 Hz and 5 Hz EMF could promote the differentiation of midbrain NSCs to a neuronal phenotype in different ways, suggesting that the physical induction might be another strategy to manipulate the differentiation. Expand
Electromagnetic Field Stimulation Potentiates Endogenous Myelin Repair by Recruiting Subventricular Neural Stem Cells in an Experimental Model of White Matter Demyelination
It seems that EMF potentiates proliferation and migration of neural stem cells and enhances the repair of myelin in the context of demyelinating conditions. Expand
Effects of Acute and Chronic Low Frequency Electromagnetic Field Exposure on PC12 Cells during Neuronal Differentiation
The hypothesis that ROS and Ca2+ could be the cellular “primum movens” of the ELF-EMF induced effects on biological systems is supported. Expand
Effects of Extremely Low Frequency Electromagnetic Fields on Vascular Permeability of Circumventricular Organs in the Adult Rat
Exposure to ELF‐EMF increased the CVO vascular permeability to colloidal carbon intravascularly injected, particularly in the subfornical organ, the median eminence, the pineal gland and the area postrema. Expand
Anti-proliferative effect of extremely low frequency electromagnetic field on preneoplastic lesions formation in the rat liver
The application of 4.5 mT - 120 Hz ELF-EMF inhibits preneoplastic lesions chemically induced in the rat liver through the reduction of cell proliferation, without altering the apoptosis process. Expand
Short-term effects of extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields exposure on Alzheimer's disease in rats
It is indicated that short-term exposure of 100 μT/50 Hz ELF-EMF had no effects on cognition and memory of rats, and did not alter the expression of Aβ and the neuron morphology. Expand
Egr1 mediated the neuronal differentiation induced by extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields.
It is found that early growth response protein 1 (Egr1) is one of the key transcription factors in ELF-EMF-induced neuronal differentiation and this findings indicate that a specific transcriptional factor, Egr1, mediates ELf- EMF- induced neuronal differentiations, and demonstrate the promise of ELF -EMF based cell replacement therapies for neurodegenerative diseases.

Electromagnetic effects - From cell biology to medicine.
This review tries to link areas of EF, MF and EMF research to thermodynamics and quantum physics, approaches that will produce novel insights into cell biology. Expand
Neuroprotective effects of extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields on a Huntington's disease rat model: effects on neurotrophic factors and neuronal density
ELFEF alleviates 3NP-induced brain injury and prevents loss of neurons in rat striatum, thus showing considerable potential as a therapeutic tool. Expand
Fifty-Hertz electromagnetic fields facilitate the induction of rat bone mesenchymal stromal cells to differentiate into functional neurons.
Given that a noninvasive treatment of 50-Hz EMF could significantly facilitate BMSC to differentiate into functional neurons, EMF appears to be a promising clinical option for stem cell transplantation therapies to combat central nervous system diseases. Expand
