International Society for Bioelectromagnetism
BackgroundThe electric and magnetic fields recorded from the body are generated by the same phenomenon: the electrochemical activation of the biological tissue. Similarly, electric field and current are induced by the magnetic impulse in magnetic stimulation. This excites the electrically active tissue.
The electric and magnetic fields are interrelated through the Maxwell equations. On the other hand, the electric and magnetic lead fields are mutually independent as stated by the Helmholtz's theorem. Therefore, to get the maximum information from the bioelectric source, it is important to discuss the biomagnetic phenomena in connection with the corresponding bioelectric phenomena.
BioelectromagnetismBioelectromagnetism is a discipline that examines the electric, electromagnetic, and magnetic phenomena which arise in biological tissues. These phenomena include:
The Purpose of the SocietyThe International Society for Bioelectromagnetism was established in 1996. The purpose of the Society is to promote the advancement of the science of Bioelectromagnetism and in furtherance thereof:
International Journal of Bioelectromagnetism, IJBEMThe Society established in 1999 the International Journal of Bioelectromagnetism, IJBEM. It is a peer-reviewed scientific journal in the field of bioelectromagnetism. It is available on the Internet free of charge to all persons interested. A printed version of the Journal is also available.
International Congresses on Bioelectromagnetism, ICBEMThe Society sponsors the organizing of International Congresses on Bioelectromagnetism.
