Abstract : Published data indicate that a constant magnetic field (CMF) affects the cardiac-circulatory system of both humans and animals. Exposure to a magnetic field induces changes in the functional states of the higher parts of the central nervous system (CNS). In an organism's complex system of adaptive reactions, an essential role is played by the conditioned reflexes in regulating the vegetative functions. This fact has led to the investigation of the effect of a CMF on the conditioned reflexes in regulating cardiac activity and respiration.
