Abstract

The effect of low energy CW HeNe laser irradiation on normal and dissected nerves in the rat was examined. The methods are described. Results are compared to the laser effect on other living tissues. HeNe irradiation was found to increase significantly the action potentials of the nerves. It was found to be a long-lasting effect, keeping an increase in the nerves action potential for more than eight months after irradition has been stopped. A possible explanation for the way the irradiation acts on the nerve is suggested.
