  1. The second column indicates the type of cell used, the third and fourth column indicate the electric field and frequency range used to evaluate the suspension (asterisk indicates a 21 points range; otherwise it was divided in 11 points), the fifth column indicates the activator or inhibitor used, the sixth column stands for the number of experiments averaged prior and posterior to the stimuli. The last column shows the p-value obtained for the test between measurements before and after the stimuli.
