Abstract:

Contents Piezoelectric properties of organic polymers Charge separation associated with dipole disordering in proteins Electrochemical information transfer at living cell membranes The basic biological data transmission and control system influenced by electrical forces Differential biologic effects of pulsed and continuous electromagnetic fields and mechanisms of effect Bioelectric potentials and their relation to growth in higher plants Possible modulation of reactions on the cell surface by changes in electrostatic potential that accompany cell contact The induction of cellular orientation by low-level electrical currents In vivo bone growth in a controlled electric field Interdisciplinary approaches in electrically mediated bone growth studies The influence of electrical current on an infecting microorganism in wounds.
