This report covers the session devoted to 'other tissues'. It considers the effects of internal electric fields such as those induced by exposure to weak, extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic fields, on cardiac physiology, neuroendocrine (pineal) function and on the processes of tissue repair and embryonic development. Summaries are provided for each of the papers presented, and the major aspects of the plenary session are discussed. Overall, these tissues and processes were not considered to be sensitive to the direct effects of weak ELF fields, although indirect effects may occur via field induced changes to the central nervous system.
