Paper Abstract

Laser beam of appropriate wavelength affecting living tissue can stimulate different processes on cell level. If laser beam power is less than about 500 mW no photothermal effects take place in the target tissue. The aim of the experimental studies was to determine whether and how the biostimulation laser beam chan change electrical activity or ear cochlea at guinea pigs. Experiment was performed on 10 pigmented animals. Very different responses of cochlea on laser expose have been recorded. Lack of answer of cochlea on the laser irradiation was observed in 20% of examined cases.
