A method is described by which the influence of time-varying magnetic fields on excitable tissue can be studied in a reproducible way. The retina of the frog (Rana temporaria) was exposed to a time-varying magnetic field. The field-generated electrical activity of the ganglion cells was recorded by a microelectrode. The method opens up new possibilities for the study of effects of low-frequency magnetic fields on excitable tissues.
