Relationships between geomagnetic Ар-indeх and EEG parameters in patients with dysfunction of the neuroendocrine-immune complex

" Our hypothesis is as follows. Disturbances of the geomagnetic field are perceived by acupuncture points (APs). The information obtained is transmitted to neurons and endocrinocytes, the mediators of which, in turn, affect immunocytes. The purpose of this study is to test this hypothesis." {Credits 1}

" Retrospectively we recorded the geomagnetic Ap-Index, i.e. the average value of deviation of the geomagnetic field strength from normal in this region (range on Earth: 35-65 µT) on the day of testing and during the previous 7 days, using a publicly available information resource." {Credits 1}

" Analysis of the canonical correlation between Ap-Indices and EEG parameters (Table 1) shows the greatest sensitivity to geomagnetic perturbations of theta rhythm. Interestingly, on the day and on the eve of EEG registration geomagnetic disturbances have an inhibitory effect, while 3 and 4 days before it - activating. Only after five days does the delta rhythm in the F8, T6, and Fp1 loci (activation) and the beta rhythm in general and the O2 locus in particular (suppression) respond to geomagnetic disturbances. An even longer stimulation lag was found for the beta rhythm at the F3 and C3 loci as well as the theta rhythm at the T5 locus, whereas the delta rhythm at the F7 locus is currently suppressed." {Credits 1}

" It appears that neurons that generate different rhythms and that are projected onto different loci of the scalp respond to geomagnetic perturbation asynchronously, with a delay of 7 to 0,5 days and inversion of stimulation into inhibition." {Credits 1}

" Our former compatriots Babayev and Allahverdiyeva [9], employing, like us, quantitative electroencephalographic (QEEG) technology, carried out investigations involving 27 functionally healthy females (permanent group), aged 20-40 years old ... Unfortunately, despite the declared quantitative approach to EEG analysis, the authors give only a qualitative description of the changes. The authors demonstrated conspicuous and specific changes in alpha and theta activity within the right hemispheres of normal subjects during major geomagnetic storms. There were almost no significant complaints about functional state in periods of weakly-disturbed geomagnetic conditions. Weak and severe geomagnetic storms affect the functional state of the human brain in a different way. It is established that weak and moderate geomagnetic storms exert stimulating influence while the strong disturbances of the geomagnetic conditions activate braking (inhibiting) processes. In the days of weak geomagnetic disturbances, no significant changes in the human brain activity were observed. Some negligible shifts, registered in several examinees, reflected an increased activity of meso-diencephalic structures usually observed during the activation of an organism. In comparison with the above-mentioned results, in the days with severe geomagnetic storms the human brain’s activity is seriously disintegrated. The normal functioning of integrative non-specific systems, located within the limits of limbric-reticular complex and responsible for creation of the relevant level of wakefulness, which is directed on realization of optimum current activity of an organism, is broken. The imbalance of activating and deactivating mechanisms also includes dysfunctions of ergo- and trophotropic over-segmentary centers. Babayev and Allahverdiyeva [9] concluded that changes in geomagnetic conditions mostly affect the activity of regulating systems, which are related to high cortical mechanisms of regulation and subcortical integrative apparatuses responsible for organization of routine activity of an organism, and for adaptation to changes of a physical environment." {Credits 1}

" For our part, we want to emphasize that theta and alpha rhythms were sensitive to geomagnetic disturbances, as in our study." {Credits 1}
