Stanford University scientists applied electrodes across fish skin cells to mimic the electrical field that forms around wounds and found that whole cells moved toward the positive electrode while fragments of cells moved in the opposite direction. Creating electric currents at injury sites could improve wound healing, one researcher said. The findings were published in the journal Current Biology.
