Abstract

The effect of a modulated electromagnetic field (MEMF) on experimentally evoked epileptiform activity of brain structures was studied in rats. Exposure to an MEMF with modulation frequencies of 2–30 Hz was shown to induce depression of paroxysmal brain electrical activity in 41% of experiments. Marked weakening of epileptiform activity was observed in 23% of experiments and potentiation in 10.1%. In 25% of experiments exposure to an MEMF did not significantly alter the character of evoked paroxysmal brain activity.
