Magnetic fields were compared inside passenger seats of electric, petrol and hybrid cars. While driving about 5 km in an urban environment, values were recorded and compared between car types. The magnetic flux densities of the cars were less than 2.6 μT. The magnitudes of the magnetic fields of petrol cars and hybrid cars were about the same and slightly lower for electric cars. Based on our measurements, values were less than 3% of the guidelines given for the general population or people using pacemakers.

Effects of single- and hybrid-frequency extremely low-frequency electromagnetic field stimulations on long-term potentiation in the hippocampal Schaffer collateral pathway.

To study the different effects of single- and hybrid-frequency magnetic fields on long-term potentiation (LTP) in synaptic plasticity. Based on the online electromagnetic field stimulation system and...

The Influence of Magnetic Fields (0.05 T ≤ B ≤ 7 T) on the Response of Personal Thermoluminescent Dosimeters to Ionizing Radiation.

We investigated the main question of whether thermoluminescent dosimeters indicate the correct dose when exposed to magnetic fields from low stray fields up to high magnetic resonance imaging fields i...

Static weak magnetic field measurements based on low-field nuclear magnetic resonance.

To measure the residual magnetic field, which is a kind of static magnetic fields in the magnetic shields, is a tough task in the design of the cylindrical magnetic shields. Here, we demonstrate a met...

A decade of magnetic vestibular stimulation (MVS): from serendipity to physics to the clinic.

For many years, people working near strong static magnetic fields of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines have reported dizziness and sensations of vertigo. The discovery a decade ago that a sust...

The effects of extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields on c-Maf, STAT6, and RORα expressions in spleen and thymus of rat.

The study investigated the effect of extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF-EMFs) exposure at different magnetic flux densities on genes expression of transcription factor Maf (c-Maf), si...

Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF) in Depression

PEMF (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields) therapy has been used to stimulate bone repair in non-union since the 1970s. This is an accepted use, which has been approved by the Food and Drug Adm...

Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF) Treatment in Patients With Treatment-Resistant Major Depression in Ongoing Pharmacological Treatment of Depression

About 30% of patients with major depression are treatment resistant to pharmacological treatment. In the search for new methods to treat depression a great interest has been put into the u...

Very Low Frequency Magnetic Fields Versus the Supplement "Xinepa" in the Treatment of the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The purpose of the study is to determine the effectiveness of the treatment with very low frequency magnetic fields (ELF) on the reduction of pain and the relief of the associated signs su...

The Utility of the Computerized Assessment and Referral System (CARS) Screener for Mental Health Evaluations in the Emergency Setting

• The CARS is based on the Composite International Diagnostic Interview (CIDI), a validated instrument for assessing mental health diagnoses (2). According to the CARS manual, "The Compu...

Sensory Effects of Rapidly-Changing Magnetic Fields

This study is being conducted to improve magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans by reducing the time required for imaging. Experience has shown that unpleasant side-effects from magnetic p...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Permanent roads having a line of rails fixed to ties and laid to gage, usually on a leveled or graded ballasted roadbed and providing a track for freight cars, passenger cars, and other rolling stock. Cars are designed to be drawn by locomotives or sometimes propelled by self-contained motors. (From Webster's 3d) The concept includes the organizational and administrative aspects of railroads as well.

The measurement of various aspects of MAGNETIC FIELDS.

Waves of oscillating electric and MAGNETIC FIELDS which move at right angles to each other and outward from the source.

The ability of an element or metallic alloy to allow the passage of ELECTRONS without ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE and expel MAGNETIC FIELDS below a certain threshold temperature called superconducting transition temperature.

The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
