Overview, Endpoints, and Methodologies -- Endpoints and Methodologies -- Extremely Low Frequency -- Experimental Results: In vivo -- Experimental Results: In vitro -- Dosimetry Related to ELF Electromagnetic Field Exposure Experiments -- What Magnetic Field Parameters are Biologically Effective? -- Induced Current as the Candidate Mechanism for Explanation of Biological Effects -- Electromagnetic Fields, Biophysical Processes, and Proposed Biophysical Mechanisms -- Radiofrequency Fields -- Radiofrequency Dosimetry and Exposure Systems -- Radiofrequency Biology: In vivo -- Radiofrequency Biology: In vitro -- Summary and Conclusion.
In this book, the authors intended to focus their effort on describing (1) biological responses of human and animals, both in vivo and in vitro methodologies, to magnetic and/or electromagnetic field exposure, (2) characteristics of effective fields, (3) hypotheses to explain possible mechanisms of interaction between the fields and cells, and (4) induced current in ELF and induced heat in RF fields as key interaction mechanisms. The readers can have the present-day comprehensive knowledge about biological responses to electromagnetic field exposure.
