The neuronal activity of the hippocampus is related to high cognitive functions, such as learning and memory. Hippocampal slices are therefore considered as appropriate structures to evidence possible changes induced by electromagnetic (EM) fields in the coordinate activity of neuronal networks. In electrophysiological recordings, brain slices are inserted in a perfused chamber and are monitored with a direct microscope. A fiber-optics is placed under the chamber for the correct positioning of the electrodes.
