Visualization of membrane potential changes induced by oscillating electric fields (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Recently, Beier et al. a new imaging system called a streak camera microscope (SCM) that is able to resolve sub nanosecond membrane potential changes in cells loaded with FluoVolt dye. This technique opens the window into the response of cell membrane potential to rapidly applied electric fields. Having demonstrated this response on single bipolar and unipolar electric pulses, we have begun to investigate the rapid charging and discharging of the plasma membrane during bursts of AC frequencies. We believe that understanding the dynamics of plasma membrane charging during AC pulses will better inform those using such pulses to modify cell behavior.
