The effect of the initial biochemical or metabolic state of a cell membrane target pathway on its sensitivity to exogenous electromagnetic (EMF) fields is considered. It is shown that the resting or initial transmembrane voltage can affect the frequency response of the membrane pathway and substantially alter the signal to thermal noise threshold (SNR) of the target. EMF sensitivity is examined using a model which describes the response to applied fields of both single cells and cells in gap… CONTINUE READING
