[Functional effects of transcranial electromagnetic stimulation (60 and 70 Hz) of the brain of intact rats and rats with acute brainstem damage].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

Behavior and brain electrical activity of 79 male Wistar rats (intact and with acute experimental brainstem injury) were studied during the course of therapeutic transcranial electromagnetic stimulation (TEMS) with frequencies 60 and 70 Hz. In intact animals this effect was accompanied by a decrease in voluntary motor activity and increase in synchronization of the brain electrical activity, in particular, in the delta and beta1 frequency ranges. This inhibitory effect was similar to that of sleep. In the early period of acute experimental stem pathology, the TEMS course was accompanied by suppression of EEG signs of adaptive post-operative stress response and could lead to increased severity of the condition of an animal, along with the slowing of postoperative recovery. Cytomorphological evidence was obtained to the importance of vascular factor in the formation of cerebral reactions to TEMS.
