Neuromodulating effects of phosphenelectrostimulation
T V Degtyarenko, I M Boychuk, N N Bushueva, A G Chaura, V S Drozhenko
We studied the directional effect of the influence of the optimal mode of phosphenelectrostimulation (PhES) on the visual, neurological, endocrine, immunological, psychological, and emotional state in children with spherical myopia (fifty-five subjects aged 11 - 15 years). The main indices of the above-mentioned systems were recorded before and after the treatment course. Evaluation of visual acuity, the latencies and amplitudes of flash visual evoked potentials (VEPs) in occipital and frontal parts of the cortex, antigens of the HLA-system, humoral immunity and phagocyte activity of leukocytes, psycho-emotional factors by Spilberger, MMPI, Lusher tests were performed on all children. We applied a 10-day course of PhES with the frequency of 15 Hz during 10 min. Visual acuity with and without correction increased after the treatment course. Latencies of P1 (occipital area) and P1 and N1 (frontal eye area) decreased after the treatment depending on the degree of myopia. Scores at some psycho-emotional tests positively improved, other indices were not changed significantly. The modulating effects of optimal mode of PhES on bioelectrical activity of the brain are thus established not only in sensory cortex, but also in motor cortex. This result supports the decrease of visual motor reflex time after treatment by PhES.
