Opening of voltage-gated sodium channels takes tens to hundreds of microseconds, and mechanisms of their opening by nanosecond pulsed electric field (nsPEF) stimuli remain elusive. This study was aime...
Electroporation is a widely-used methodology for permeabilization of cells using pulsed electric field (PEF). In this paper, we compare the electroporation efficiency in terms of molecular transport a...
We report the all-optical generation and characterization of tilted electron pulses by means of single-cycle terahertz radiation at an electron-transmitting mirror at slanted orientation. Femtosecond ...
Nanosecond bipolar pulse cancellation, a recently discovered phenomenon, is modulation of the effects of a unipolar electric pulse exposure by a second pulse of opposite polarity. This attenuation of ...
Electric fields are among physical stimuli that have revolutionized therapy. Occurring endogenously or exogenously, the electric field can be used as a trigger for controlled drug release from electro...
Structural lung and airway alterations in CF lead to focal or heterogeneous abnormalities in regional lung ventilation. The quantitative assessment of structural and functional alterations...
The purpose of this pilot study is to encourage oncology patients to continue effort retraining after their release from rehabilitation and recuperative care facilities with physical activ...
The investigators developed an ultra-speed picosecond laser (20ps) with a 20gHz repetition rate that provide very promising results in vitro and in ex vivo skin to remove skin tattoos. Th...
The purpose of this research is to compare two different approaches for treating patients with stress urinary incontinence: neuromuscular re-education, impairment-based exercise and electr...
Randomized, experimental, non-inferiority clinical trial to determine the comparative effectiveness and safety of two protocols used in the treatment of ED with Li-ESWT, for patients seen ...
In about 250 species of electric fishes, modified muscle fibers forming disklike multinucleate plates arranged in stacks like batteries in series and embedded in a gelatinous matrix. A large torpedo ray may have half a million plates. Muscles in different parts of the body may be modified, i.e., the trunk and tail in the electric eel, the hyobranchial apparatus in the electric ray, and extrinsic eye muscles in the stargazers. Powerful electric organs emit pulses in brief bursts several times a second. They serve to stun prey and ward off predators. A large torpedo ray can produce of shock of more than 200 volts, capable of stunning a human. (Storer et al., General Zoology, 6th ed, p672)
Injuries caused by electric currents. The concept excludes electric burns (BURNS, ELECTRIC), but includes accidental electrocution and electric shock.
A technique in which electric pulses of intensity in kilovolts per centimeter and of microsecond-to-millisecond duration cause a temporary loss of the semipermeability of CELL MEMBRANES, thus leading to ion leakage, escape of metabolites, and increased uptake by cells of drugs, molecular probes, and DNA.
An order of neotropical electric fish found chiefly in the waters of South America. They continually emit weak electric discharges, which they use in object location and communication. A most popular species of research interest is the electric eel, ELECTROPHORUS electricus.
Fishes which generate an electric discharge. The voltage of the discharge varies from weak to strong in various groups of fish. The ELECTRIC ORGAN and electroplax are of prime interest in this group. They occur in more than one family.
