The effects of qigong waiqi on the single sodium channel of cultured neurons were tested by using patch clamp technique.
1. The single sodium channel of cultured neuron has a conductance of 8.6pS. in physiology saline. The open-time constancy is 3.2+-0.01 ms.
2. After qigong was applied with left hand at distance 1.2m for 10 min, the conductance of sodium channel is 16.5 pS. The open-time constancy is 8.1+-0.02ms.
It was suggested that qigong waiqi could activate the sodium channel and have excitatory effect on the neurons.
