Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields and Biomedical Applications
Investigation Committee on Bioelectromagnetic Research and Biomagnetism
The technical report provides recent topics on bio-electro-magnetic research. The field had a distinct activity both in safety aspects and new applications. A huge number of studies were carried out in the safety aspects of electromagnetic fields, and a plenty of important knowledge was obtained. The research on the effects of strong magnetic fields on materials was distinctly proceeded. Also, we summarized and discussed the effects of magnetic field on living system, functions of living creatures. Biological phenomena under high frequency magnetic fields were also observed. New technologies in biomedical applications, such as bio-magnetic measurements and hyperthermia, were presented in this report.
